London - Plans to build a network of cycle paths high above the streets of London are being put forward for consultation, the BBC reports.

Sir Norman Foster, the architect who designed London's Gherkin tower, has been working on The SkyCycle project with Exterior Architecture and Space Syntax since 2012. Comprised of a 136-mile (219 km) network, made up of 10 different routes has been proposed to run from east London to Liverpool Street Station at an estimated cost of more than £200m.

Awaiting approval, the first of 10 routes  will be built above existing rail lines. The entire project could take about 20 years to complete.
