London Could Turn Street Into Trampoline

Officials in London are considering turning part of a street into a lengthy trampoline to boost fitness and even cut down commuting times for pedestrians.

An official document from Transport for London notes:

The Bounceway will be the world’s longest urban trampoline. This iconic and inclusive new public space in the heart of London will boost fitness and fun, and provide a novel form of transport where the journey is the main event. The trial will be part-funded by a crowdfunding campaign set to launch in late 2014.

The Us vs Them site noticed the project appears to be based on a proposal that notes “The pedestrian will bounce, jump and spring forward. It’s a novel solution to the boredom of the morning commute.” [That proposal is the source of these images.]
