Deborah Arnott MBA FRCP (Hon), is the Chief Executive of Action on Smoking & Health. As a London -based employer, Deborah explains why her team welcome the changes:
‘I am the chief executive of a health charity based in central London, Action on Smoking and Health.
‘I cycle to work on daily basis as do many of my staff. An even larger proportion would like to cycle, but feel our streets are not safe for cycling.
‘We endorse the plans outlined by TfL to create new segregated routes through the heart of the city. Both the proposed North–South and East–West routes will help encourage more people to cycle so increasing their health and wellbeing and also reducing the strain on public transport. The proposals will also make London a more attractive place to live and work.’
