'Embrace' safer cycling routes aim - Ken Skates AM

New guidance which, if adopted, could see cyclists use pedestrianised areas may be dangerous for disabled people, a group of charities has claimed.

Guide Dogs Cymru, Disability Wales, RNIB Cymru and Wales Council of the Blind say it could increase collisions and the chance of injury.

Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism Ken Skates said it would help make travelling safer and easier for cyclists and pedestrians.

But Rhyan Berrigan, transport policy officer for Disability Wales, said there was still concern there was not more precise detail to deal with the risks to disabled people sharing paths with cyclists.
