Does anyone know when St Thomas St will reopen? Thameslink's website says the first part of the new street level concourse & entrance is due in August, but there's no mention of the road...

St Thomas Street between Stainer Street and Bermondsey Street will reopen in 2018.

Weston Street between St Thomas Street/Tooley Street and Stainer Street between St Thomas Street/Tooley Street will be closed permanently.

Absolute chaos trying to get through the tiny bit of pavement left yesterday. Wheely cases, tourists stopping with confusion, cyclists refusing to accept that the footpath might be a footpath. Took very little to block it to a complete halt.

Even though the contractors are widening the pavement, good luck to anyone trying to walk along Tooley Street in the next two years.

Why the heck didn't contractors start earlier o the pavement area?

A rather bizarre un-intended consequence of the blockage of Tooley Street to Eastbound traffic, is the diversion of numerous London Tourist Bus Tours down Borough High Street, Great Dover Street, Bricklayers Arms Roundabout and then back up Tower Bridge Road -all that, just to get back on course to cross Tower Bridge.

What on earth is the commentary saying during that stretch of the journey? It's almost worth jumping on at Borough High Street to find out.

Wonder what will happen Floodplain when Tower Bridge closes for 3 months to the tour buses? I suppose they could divert to see the exciting sight of the elephant and castle new roundabout!

Any tourists that are on the bus from Borough station to the Elephant, thence down New Kent Road to the Brick, before crawling up Tower Bridge Road will no doubt be told, "If you didn't go to school, and pay attention, you too could have ended up here, just look, shiver, then thank God that you live in Crap Bluff, Nebraska."

I can imagine there being ex-residents of Damascus and Aleppo on board, saying to one another, "And we thought it was bad back home!"

The RV1 bus eastbound is now diverted across London Bridge and along Eastcheap - which must already be confusing tourists, especially any expecting to get to HMS Belfast or Tower Bridge!
