January business bulletin North-West London.


 

Welcome to the New Year and the January edition of the business bulletin. January traditionally provides us with an opportunity to plan ahead for the coming year by making a resolution and taking stock of our achievements last year.

2015 was a year that saw our Cycling Workplaces scheme win the London Cycling Campaign “Best Workplace Scheme” award. Winning such a prestigious award saw a significant number of new businesses sign up for our free scheme and now over 980 employees representing over 180,000 employes registered to date. Our walking challenge resulted in a 2% increase in the number of employees who walk to work. We also launched the much awaited Walking Tube map and had a substantial increase in participation in our free guided walks. The Road Modernisation Plan is well underway with work commencing on segregated Cycle Superhighways, improved junctions and more public spaces.

As we look forward to the year ahead this edition brings you information on projects that will help you to increase the physical activity of your workforce, get the most out of the transport network and ensure your views are gathered in consultations.

Start the year off by encouraging safer cycling to your employees

Free one-to-one cycle skills training is available for all London employers through the Cycling Workplaces scheme. The British Dental Association have say “TfL’s Cycling Workplaces helped us to fulfil a need to encourage safety and awareness for staff thinking about cycling and for those who had been cycling to work for many years.”

A qualified cycle instructor will visit your workplace and deliver one hour, on-bike sessions for staff of all abilities, from beginners to intermediate and experienced cyclists. If you would like find out more about the scheme email cycletraining@tfl.gov.uk or visit our website.
