Dear Councillor Jones,
McElhanney Consulting Services is a leading civil engineering based in Angel. We provide bridge design services on complex bridge projects around the world and have had an office in London for over four years. Several of our employees use the Tavistock/Torrington Place route on their daily commute.
Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our employees cycle to work. An even larger proportion of our team would cycle to the office if they felt comfortable and safe on the roads.
We value their safety and we want to promote active lifestyles for all our employees. We support their freedom to choose how they get to work. We also note strong evidence that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels.
The excellent provision for cycling in the Tavistock/Torrington Place trial scheme will help us attract and retain the employees our business needs to continue to thrive. They will also make London a more attractive city in which to build and run our business.
The scheme is, on balance, excellent for our business and for London. Please ensure that it is retained.
