Herbert Smith Freehills, with 700 lawyers including 164 partners in central London, is endorsing the plans to create new segregated cycle routes through central London. The proposals have been designed to provide clear and convenient routes for cyclists, physically separated from other vehicles.
Jonathan Scott, Senior Partner, commented: “Herbert Smith Freehills has long been an active proponent of cycling safety in London holding regular cycle safety seminars and workshops for staff. We fully support any initiative that allows our employees and other Londoners the chance to cycle to work in safer conditions and these proposed Cycle Superhighways form a strong solution to the current situation on the roads.”
Dan Hudson, a Partner who suffered life threatening injuries as a result of an accident whilst cycling home from work three and half years ago said: “Anything which lessens the risk of cycling accidents in London, gets my vote!”.
