'Sky Tree' is the name given to a new digital t.v. broadcast tower being erected in Tokyo. The tower will be completed in 2011 and will be 634 metres high (yes ,that's 634 metres!) making it the tallest free-standing tower in the world and the tallest man-made tower in Japan. This structure has brought increased tourism and development to the immediate area.
On the downside, residents have to cope with increased traffic caused by tourist and construction vehicles. The improved tourist spending is welcome of course. The re-routing of traffic to nearby roads has however caused an increase in traffic accidents.
