If I understand correctly, the Thames Path at/under the south end of Blackfriars Bridge
will now be closed in Sept (having been postponed) so they can construct the new entrance to Blackfriars station on the south bank.
Does anyone know whether that closure is permanent or temporary? Where will the Thames Path run at that point after the station entrance is built? The few pictures available make it look like the station entrance will be exactly where the current tunnel under the south side of the bridge is. Will it still be possible to walk through there? It looks like it could get very congested with pedestrians, esp at weekends. Not to mention the issues with cyclists which people have raised before. And will it even be possible if in fact there are ticket barriers etc etc?
I wonder if there's anyone out there from Network Rail or the developers or the council etc etc who has a detailed knowledge of what's going on.
