#Skycycle is back! But can it become a reality? @markbikeslondon

There are times and places where it makes good sense to separate cyclists, pedestrians and motorised traffic. The Dutch example shows best how and when to mix modes and when to separate them out using design and infrastructure. Cyclists can be kept away from traffic either by discouraging it, such as with filtered permeability, or with kerbs and side path cycle tracks in place of car lanes. But unlike the Skycycle model, the separation is not happening in cities like Rotterdam in order to allow the traffic flow status quo to remain unchallenged, but to allow the city to make a choice that promotes the solution that is best for itself. Namely, the cycle space in the centre of Dutch cities is there instead of using that space for storing and moving cars , as oppose to the side of it (or in the case of the Skycycle, up above it.)
