More than 110 London businesses, including RBS, Unilever, Orange and Deloitte, have expressed support for the Superhighway. There has been a robust debate generated so far by the proposals for the East-West and North-South Cycle Superhighways. I do acknowledge that some have concerns, and we will consider these fully as part of the formal consultation process to ensure we have the best possible scheme for London.
