It may only be a matter of three years until the London skyline is dotted with a series of cycle paths which are elevated above the city`s buildings, according to new plans.
Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, has outlined tentative proposals for a scheme he is calling ‘SkyCycle`, which could potentially be used to connect the capital`s mainline stations, improve safety for cyclists and add yet another fascinating sight to accompany existing landmarks like the London Eye and the Shard.
Being designed with the view of costing only £1 per journey for those using the raised tunnels, the project is being led by landscape architect Sam Martin, who has said that initial discussions with Johnson about the idea have been ‘going well`.
Whilst the SkyCycle is not expected to be fully operational until 2015, there are still a whole host of reasons to stay in one of the many great hotels in London
soon, with the city home to some of the most inspirational sights and attractions in the world.
