Consortium propose floating cycle superhighway for the Thames

The floating bike path would provide a solution to pollution and traffic problems in the capital say consortium

The idea for a £600m 12km floating cycle superhighway on the River Thames has been unveiled by a group of architects, artists and engineers.

The Thames Deckway would run alongside the south bank of the river from Battersea to Canary Wharf, parallel to part of the East-West Cycle Crossrail, whose designs were announced last month. One striking difference is the cost - £600m for 12km or seven miles, compared with £47m for the 18 mile Cycle Crossrail project.
