Sir Norman Foster's architects' firm has hit the headlines with plans for aerial SkyCycle routes following rail lines in London. Should we take them seriously or is this simply a publicity stunt on a post-Xmas quiet news day?
He is proposing a network of 220km of 'SkyCycle' routes, mounted above existing railway lines.
Launching his plans, Sir Norman said: "I believe that cities where you can walk or cycle, rather than drive, are more congenial places in which to live. To improve the quality of life for all in London and to encourage a new generation of cyclists, we have to make it safe." Thus far, I would agree wholeheartedly!
