Skrill has added it’s voice to the huge number of London employers calling for new protected cycle routes to be built.
Skrill is a leading financial services and payments business based in Canary Wharf. They serve over 36 million customers and work with over 150,000 businesses worldwide. They have been based in London for over 10 years.
Speaking on behalf of the company, Tim Waller said:
‘Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our over 100 employees in London 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.
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.
‘Crossrail for Bikes’ is, on balance, great for our business and for London. Please make sure these plans are delivered, without delay.
