Changes at London Bridge

Major Changes to Tooley Street

From 30 April until February 2018 there will be changes to the road and pavement on Tooley Street, as work to rebuild London Bridge station continues as part of the Thameslink Programme.

30 April to 3 May 2016 – May Day Bank Holiday Weekend

From the early hours of Saturday 30 April until Tuesday 3 May Tooley Street closes completely to traffic from Borough High Street to Bermondsey Street while we relocate our worksite. You will still be able to access Tooley Street on foot throughout the weekend.

There will also be changes to train services throughout the bank holiday weekend as work continues across London and the South East as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan.  Please check before you travel at

From Tuesday 3 May 2016 until February 2018

From Tuesday 3 May the footpath on the station side of the road closes to pedestrians from under the pedestrian bridge to the Cottons Centre to Bermondsey Street. The footpath on the other side of the road will remain open throughout the closure.

Cyclists will be able to travel in both directions on Tooley Street – westbound with the traffic and eastbound in a segregated lane.

Tooley Street will be closed to eastbound traffic from Borough High Street to Bermondsey Street. Westbound traffic will travel in the eastbound lane. Routes 47 towards Catford Bus Garage, 343 towards City Hall, 381 towards Peckham, N199 towards St Mary Cray and RVI towards Tower Gateway will be diverted. Westbound buses will operate as normal.

The taxi rank on Tooley Street moves to Bermondsey Street and remains there once the new station is completed.
