There's a crowdfunding campaign for a floating cycle path across the Thames

We first heard whispers of a floating cycle path coming to London back in October last year but now it's back on the cards as the company behind it, River Cycleway Consortium Ltd, has just launched a crowdfunding campaign. The traffic-free path would be reserved for cyclists and pedestrians, with four lanes and a 24/7 traffic flow system according to different times of day and days of the week. During morning and evening peak times, three lanes would be devoted to cyclists, but during off-peak times the lanes would be split equally between cyclists and pedestrians. The crowdfunding campaign needs to raise a whopping £175,000, but if it's successful, it'll cost you slightly less to use at £1.50 per journey. The folks behind the project estimate that without traffic and all those pesky red lights, cyclists could get from Battersea to Westminster Bridge in just 21 minutes. Who says you can't walk (or cycle) on water?
