Elfrida Rathbone, Camden based charity, backs ‘Crossrail for bikes’

E-R_logo_pic-238pxElfrida Rathbone Camden works to achieve independence, empowerment and personal development for disabled people, children and young people, parents and families.

Alexis Keir, Director of Elfrida Rathbone Camden, outlined why as a employer in Camden they are supporting the new plans.

‘We are proud of the work of my team with people needing support in Camden and North London. We employ over 30 people. 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 employee satisfaction, health, and freedom and that’s why 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 us attract and retain the employees our business needs to continue to thrive.

‘These plans are good for business, for London, and for all Londoners whether they cycle or not.

‘We believe the proposals will make London a more attractive place to build a business, to work, and to conduct business. We also note strong evidence from cities around the world that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels.

‘We support the plans and hope they they can be delivered as soon as possible.’
