I'm beginning to suspect it won't reopen to Eastbound traffic. The number of roads in SE1 which are either closed or made one-way during building works that have never been reopened is growing constantly. Also, I seem to remember a post on here a while back about a dedicated cycle lane being installed in Tooley Street, in which case perhaps it was always the intention to retain one-way traffic. I could very well be wrong on this point though.

I think the cycle lane proposal was for Tooley Street east of Tower Bridge Road. The original notices about the closure of Tooley Street eastbound referred to reopening in May or June 2018. (Which I think is about when the station becomes fully operational with Thameslink services running through again.)

But what is happening to St Thomas Street? They laid it out with the new traffic signs and road markings (two-way traffic to west of the new station entrance, westbound only east of the entrance), but never reopened the eastern stretch, then allowed someone to dig a trench down the middle obliterating the road markings, and it's still closed. The western end is a dead end with inadequate space for turning traffic, and closed off whenever the contractors on the adjacent building site feel like it. Presumably nothing to do with the railway works since they finished the south side of the station ages ago.

OK - gotcha! Thanks for clarifying. I wondered about St Thomas Street as well.

Do we have any idea what retail etc are planning on opening?
It does look great

This was in Comptoir Group's trading update earlier today:

The Company opened two new Comptoir Libanais sites and one Shawa in the second half of 2017, together with the opening of a first international franchise operation in the Netherlands with HMS Host. The Company ended the year with 26 restaurants, with a further 3 franchise restaurants. The Company is on course to open two more restaurants in 2018 - Comptoir Birmingham (H1'2018) and Comptoir London Bridge (H2' 2018).[u][/u]

In the tunnel between the overground concourse and the underground there are two glowing Hamleys signs. Toy time!

Comptoir libanais and hamleys? Thatís a strange one but sounds good. Any other news or rumours?

I would name one if I was allowed to, but the client says no.
