More than 500 Siemens employees to help with £6.5 million Lincolnshire County Council transport project
Siemens employees at Teal Park are recording how they travel to work to see which methods of transport people are using in the LN6 area.
The Siemens Sustainable Travel Project will launch on Monday, February 4, with employees recording their daily journeys throughout February, March and April 2013.
The survey, which is being carried out by Lincolnshire County Council in partnership with Siemens, will contribute valued baseline data towards Access LN6 - a £6.5million programme to improve sustainable transport options in the area.
William Webb, executive member for highways and transportation at Lincolnshire County Council, said:

"Lincolnshire County Council is delighted that Siemens are supporting the Access LN6 project by encouraging their employees to travel to work sustainably. Recording Siemens' employees travel patterns will enable us to see how the Access LN6 programme can support Siemens, and other businesses, in the LN6 postcode."
Up to 500 employees at Siemens' Teal Park office are expected to take part in the project.
Andy Bennett, Travel Project Manager at Siemens Lincoln, said:
"Siemens is strongly committed to sustainable transport and has already pioneered a number of 'green' transport initiatives in Lincoln with the introduction of electric vehicles into its fleet to reduce its carbon footprint in the city. We are delighted to support the council in this latest initiative - Access LN6. The programme is a great way to get our employees involved, whilst helping gather the data needed to support future initiatives. It will enable employees to play a role personally and help raise awareness of each person's impact on the environment and what we can each do to foster sustainable living."
Other businesses in LN6 will be encouraged to complete similar travel surveys from spring 2013.
