I tend to agree to some extent, the tunnels mean you dont take your life in your hands crossing all that traffic and you stay dry longer. Thing is,the whole area is due to be pedestrianised so the tunnels arent going to be necessary. Staying dry will still be a problem!

Has it really? Aren't they just disconnecting the services or something?
There is still no hoarding around the site which was supposed to be put up at the end of last year....

Has anyone seen info on the London Park Hotel site proposal - for 470 flats?

I think that article is probably referring to the internal demolition work going on in the building. I certainly didn't notice any obvious signs of external demolition when I passed by last night or this morning. I wonder what is taking so long? Is there loads of asbestos there perhaps?

Also very interesting to see that the London Park Hotel site is being ear-marked as a long-term venue for the Southwark Playhouse.

Does anyone have a completion date for the Tower?

I looked again at Castle House this morning: The front entrance was locked (with padlocks from the outside) and appart from three parked cars there was no activity on the rear either, nor any noise coming out from the inside...either they are the quietest demolition crew ever or they must have been on a coffee break!
Works are supposed to take approx. three years, so that's completion in 2010.

Demolishion of the Volvo garage @ Elephant Road goes steady - this morning they started to tear down the remaining steelframe / roof of the building along New Kent Road.
