IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PASSENGERS USING LONDON BRIDGE STATION THIS WEEKEND

Date: 21 Mar 2011

As part of the on-going Shard project, the bus station at London Bridge station will be demolished and rebuilt. The existing canopy roof over the bus station will be removed on each of the four weekends in March.

This weekend, 26th and 27th March, a complete closure of the bus station will be necessary meaning that there will be no vehicular access to the front of the station. During these weekend closures:

• Taxis will relocate outside of the station. If you need a taxi, you will need to make your way to the temporary rank near the London Dungeon attraction at Tooley Street. There will be Marshals in the vicinity who will help you to find the rank if you need assistance.

• Buses will not be able to serve the station while the work is taking place, so services 17, 43, 48, 141, 149, N21 and N343 will pick up and drop off passengers at locations near to the station. For details of where these services will operate from, please click on the link below:

• The footbridge to Guy’s Hospital will also be closed so passengers will need to access the hospital via the Joiner Street tube exit.

• Passengers who require mobility assistance will be able to speak to any member of station staff, or to any of the marshals outside the station to arrange assistance. Please note that there will be no vehicular access to the front of the station, so please use Tooley Street to pick up and drop off those who require mobility assistance. Step free access to the station and platforms is available from Tooley Street via Joiner Street.

During the closures easy to follow signage and extra bus station staff and customer information assistants will be on hand to provide help and information for you.
