Another week, another strange public works project in the cards for London 2012 next year.
A scheme to provide a floating walkway across the Thames has been revealed.
From the BBC:
A kilometre-long floating river walk is planned for the River Thames in time for the Olympics.
The scheme, backed by £60m of private investment, would provide a 12m (39ft) wide floating pontoon in the City of London from Blackfriars Bridge.
Eight themed pavilions are proposed which would showcase London.
The award-winning London River Park design is now being submitted to the City of London Corporation for consideration.
It is being backed by private companies who have signed an agreement with Mayor of London Boris Johnson that would see 30% of revenues raised going to the public purse.
Mr Johnson, said: “The sheer beauty and design brilliance of this structure will provide yet another amazing attraction for the capital.
Will certainly be interesting! Can’t wait to see it.
