SpringerNature

Dear Councillor Jones,

SpringerNature is one of the world’s leading global research, educational and professional publishers based in King’s Cross and employing c.2000 people in this area.

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. The excellent provision for cycling in the Tavistock/Torrington Place trial matters a lot to all of us who use it and is a huge improvement on the previous cycle paths in that area. It enables our employees to get around easily – and most importantly safely. Many have provided us with feedback to that effect.

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. We would be grateful if you could please support and ensure that it is retained.

Kind regards,

Charlie Thelu
