The event was designed to keep cyclists safe on the roads with a number of initiatives open to them on the day including mechanical checks and security tagging. A Lynch Grab lorry was donated for the day to allow cyclists an opportunity to sit in the drivers seat and discover the drivers all round visibility.
‘We are very happy to be involved in such a worthwhile event,’ said Stephen Bremner, Lynch Project Manager, ‘All cyclists that sat in the drivers seat learnt about visibility from the lorry drivers perspective; it definitely influences positive behaviour on the road. We want to continue to raise awareness in this area.’
The event was a collaboration between Camden Council, Brent Council and The Metropolitan Police. They plan to hold more in the coming months.
'Many thanks to Lynch Plant Hire for taking part in the Exchanging Places event in Kilburn and also helping to make it a success.' Paul Davis, Principal Transport Planner, Camden Council.
