St Paul's to Notre Dame cycle path under discussion

Published: Tuesday 13th of January 2009

A cycle path stretching from St Paul's Cathedral to Notre Dame in Paris could be built in time for the 2012 Olympic Games, it has been reported.

According to the Daily Mail, the 218-mile lane from London to the French capital would be free from motorised traffic and has already met with approval from planners in both countries.

The proposed route will utilise former railway lines and parts of the existing National Cycle Network.

Robin Reed, principal transport planner at East Sussex county council, told the newspaper: "It all started when some French officials came to Sussex to look at a cycle track we had built from Polegate to Heathfield, along the abandoned Cuckoo Line railway track.

"They were impressed and they went back and did the same thing in France, from Dieppe to Forge-les-Eaux. The idea was you could link the two up using the Newhaven to Dieppe ferry. Then it was decided that the whole thing could be expanded."

LondonPass holders can enjoy free entry to St Paul's Cathedral, saving £10 for adults and £3.50 for children.
