London’s crazy but awesome cable cars

London is in the middle of building a huge set of cable cars crossing the Thames.

It maybe a sign that I don’t read enough news or am reading the wrong things, but the only single place I have read anything about this at all is IanVisit’s quirky London / transport / tunnels blog.

He’s been visiting regularly, taking photos of the construction in various phases, and reports that the cables are due to go in soon.

The progress from “never heard of it” to “open to the paying public” seems to be going ever so fast.

PS, if you’ve never heard of IanVisits before, there’s loads there to love, but you might in particular like his photos of deserted London, taken in the early hours of Christmas morning. It even made the front page of Flickr!

Update: Martin on Facebook gives me a link to this video:
