What the papers say - THE TIMES

News stand

A tribe of native Americans is to build a glass bottomed walkway over the Grand Canyon. The steel beam supported 'skywalk' will extend 21m over the canyon's south rim in a horseshoe shape, 1,200m above the Colorado river, and carry 120 people. The walkway is part of a £22.2M programme by the Hualapai tribe to turn 4000ha of reservation land into a tourist resort. The project will open in January 2006.
