Elevated Bike Lanes May Be in London's Future

Design News 09.17.12

What cyclist doesn't wish they could travel a city unencumbered by cars? London's solution may be an elevated bike-only highway called SkyCycle. Connecting at train stations, SkyCycle access would require a small fee, but allow bikes the safety and speed of commuting without vehicles or pedestrians. The project is not yet approved, and would likely take 2 years to be constructed.
