Norman Foster’s Plans for elevated ‘SkyCycle’

Standard

The project, which has the backing of Network Rail and Transport for London, would see over 220km of car-free routes installed above London\’s suburban rail network, suspended on pylons above the tracks and accessed at over 200 entrance points. At up to 15 metres wide, each of the ten routes would accommodate 12,000 cyclists per hour and improve journey times by up to 29 minutes, according to the designers.

Lord Foster, who says that cycling is one of his great passions, describes the plan as “a lateral approach to finding space in a congested city.”
