cable car across the Thames looks set to reverse years of neglect after a succession of river crossings have been built ignoring the needs of cyclists.

To complement the East London venues for the 2012 Olympics, a bike-carrying cable car is being proposed, linking Greenwich and Docklands.

It would be the first river crossing to allow bicycles on it since the Queen Elizabeth II bridge was opened in 1991.

Since then eight river crossings have been built, six for rail passengers only, and two for pedestrians. They are:

  • Jubilee line four crossings, for tube passengers
  • DLR two crossings, for rail passengers
  • Hungerford Bridge pedestrians
  • Millennium Bridge pedestrians

A cyclist wanting to cross the QEII bridge in Dartford must be taxied across the motorway bridge in a van with their bicycle.
