The bus station closed at short notice in mid-December after a collapsed sewer was discovered in London Bridge Street.

The closure of London Bridge Street meant that the only access to the bus station and taxi rank at the railway station was also blocked.

A temporary bus park was created in the Transport for London-owned yard on Southwark Street to accommodate buses that would normally wait in the bus station between journeys.

The London Bridge Station taxi rank was relocated to St Thomas Street.

Work on the sewer was completed in mid-March but the developers of The Place took advantage of the situation to resurface London Bridge Street before the bus station was reopened.
