London Bridge Bus Station canopy to be removed

The brown canopy above London Bridge Bus Station will be removed next month as work on the creation of a new bus station continues.

Work on a dramatic facelift of London Bridge Bus Station began at the end of last year.

The next phase of the works is to remove the canopy above the bus station.

This demolition work will be carried out over four weekends in March. During these four weekends the bus station and taxi rank will be closed.

The taxi rank will be temporarily relocated to Duke Street Hill and Tooley Street.

The Duke Street Hill/Tooley Street rank will be enlarged from one to three taxis and the surrounding loading bay will be suspended during the weekend closures.

The rank opposite More London will be increased from four to 10 taxis and the loading bay there will also be suspended.

Taxi marshals will be employed to help passengers, to control taxi queues, and to call taxis up from the feeder rank to the head rank.

Network Rail works on Sundays in February mean that the bus station and taxi rank will not be accessible via London Bridge Street.
