"Report suggests 500 lives a year could be saved 'if London had Danish levels of cycling'"

Link to Evening Standard

"The lives of more than 500 Londoners a year could be saved if cycling in the capital increased to the level in Copenhagen, a major health report has claimed.

"The World Health Organisation report said that an estimated 542 premature deaths from pollution and road collisions would be avoided if 26 per cent of journeys were made by bike, the rate in the Danish capital.

"At present, only three per cent of journeys in London are by bicycle.

"As part of a 'call to action' across Europe, WHO researchers forecast that 8,196 jobs would be created in London if it could dramatically increase its cycling rate."
