Plans issued for bridge across Millennium Dome
The 365m wide, 52m tall Millennium Dome, I'm sure, needs little introduction. It's hardly an obstacle - you can just walk round it (or through it, when in its current guise as The O2 it is unoccupied by some event or other).
Planning consent is being sought for the construction of a skywalk right across the Dome, from one side to another, a skywalk which would therefore also be 365m long and 52m high. It will be open only to supervised access, with visitors being escorted across in groups. Apart from the obvious concerns about people wandering off-piste and trailing muddy footprints over the pristine teflon-coated Dome, this is more of an adventure experience than a stroll across a simple footbridge.
