I assume that the red trusses will soon go and that the nightime lighting is only temporary and will be significantly better when its completed. If not then at night it will not look much different to what it did before!!
Actually for a few months this new entrance may look quite nice however I have a feeling the feelgood factor might be short lived as the construction work commences on all sides for the new station! Once the new station is complete only around 30- 40% of the passengers will use this way out as it will essentially become the bus station/ taxi entrance and the route for a proportion of the terminus passengers heading for the City. The majority of the passengers will be emerging in Tooley and St Thomas Street or heading along the ground level mall to the Underground Station. This concourse may end up nearly as empty as these sunday evening shots most of the time?!

Funny how we each interpret the image differently. I thought you were drawing attention to the bollards being in place during the early evening when people are rushing off the escalators and contrasting it with the later pic of them removed once the place was empty!

Amazing how quiet London Bridge station is after the rush hour!

When it is complete,and out of peak hours, perhaps Network Rail could sublet their much vaunted new football pitch sized concourse for say ...........
5 aside football piches?????

The picture posted by Phoney is very emblematic.
Maybe when the Shard is done the situation will change and there will be more people.

In fact I have an apparently "unrelated" question regarding London Bridge station.

It seems to me that there is a quite high number of serious assoults during the year. Posted on this web regularly.

Anybody has statistics or comparisons with the general situation in London? Is it a hot station for it?

Thank you.

Network Rail will attend a meeting on Thursday 13th October at 6pm that is open to the public.

This will be to discuss their proposals for the redevelopment of the station.

"All Bermondsey residents are warmly invited to come and see the proposals and have your say about the redevelopment plans, ask questions, voice concerns and contribute ideas"
