Momentum has worked on some of the UK’s most iconic structures including The Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, as well as the Royal National Theatre. They join another engineering firm Price & Myers in calling for the new cycle lanes to be built.
Director Richard Heath responded to the consultation, and explained in a letter to Transport for London,
‘Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our 20 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. We also note strong evidence that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels.
‘Crossrail for Bikes’ is, on balance, great for our business and for London.
