Further to Mickeysalt's query regarding Thameslink 2000, there has been an important development in the last couple of days. (I thought I'd start a new topic because it's important stuff and I didn't want people to miss it).
I've been in touch with Network Rail and they tell me that they submitted a new planning application to Southwark Council on Friday for the replacement buildings around Borough Market.
As soon as the application becomes validated people have 21 days to view the plans and comment on them, which they can do in the following ways:
Network Rail will be holding an exhibition of the plans at Borough Market in Green Dragon Court on Thursday 15 July from 7-9am and 12-7pm. (Anyone can just turn up and view them).
You can also view them at local libraries. A full list of places to view them will be posted on the Network Rail website from noon today:
where brief details have already been posted (Application Number 04-AP-1133)
I'm told it is highly likely that the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister will also want to hold an enquiry, which will probably happen in 2005, but it is still important for people to make their views known through the means available listed above.

There are 3 applications and several statements to accompany them. You need a month to go through it!
The simplest and fastest option is to call T2000 on 020 7023 3138 and ask for a copy of the "T2000 Environmental Statement Non-technical summary "
as a starter and then look at the planning applications.
Well the application for the widening of Blackfriars Bridge comprises of 3 applications and they have been submitted to the City, but only half of the bridge is in the City so Southwark should have the same.
"but only half of the bridge is in the City so Southwark should have the same"
At least the proper Blackfriars Bridge is entirely in the City, even the little park on the south bank of the bridge belongs to the city. I think all Thames bridges always belong entirely to the borough on either side, not half and half.
