The riverside RV1 bus linking Wateroo with Butler's Wharf is now running the length of Southwark Street.
Sumner Street has been temporarily narrowed to allow for contruction work on an electricity cable tunnel entry in the Tate's garden. Work is expected to last at least until the end of 2005.
The clear run for the RV1 along Southwark Street is being welcomed by some residents. With a pedestrian walk from Southwark Street through the Tate to the river due for completion around 2006 it is likely that the bus route will remain on the main road.
