London Mayor Boris Johnson said:
“A cable car spanning the majestic Thames would not only provide a unique and pioneering addition to London’s skyline, but also offer a serene and joyful journey across the river.â€
He added: “Passengers would be able to drink in the truly spectacular views of the Olympic Park and iconic London landmarks whilst shaving valuable minutes from their travelling time.
â€œIt would also provide a much needed enhancement of cross river options to the east of the city.”
The cable car has been a successful mode of transport in a number of cities including Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and Barcelona.
It sounds fantastic! Are you as excited about this new scheme as we are?
