Knight Frank, leading global property consultancy, back ‘Crossrail for Bikes’

knight-frankKnight Frank is one of the world’s leading independent property consultancies. Their global network encompasses 244 offices with more than 7,067 employees handling in excess of £498 billion worth of commercial, agricultural and residential real estate annually.  Knight Frank have been based in London for more than 120 years.

john-williams-knight-frankJohn Williams, Head of PR at Knight Frank, today explained why the issue of improved cycle infrastructure is so important to the company:

‘Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our employees cycle to work, in fact the growth in the past three years has been exponential. 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 proposed north–south and east–west routes 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.’
