Collapsed sewer forces London Bridge bus station closure

13:05 18 December 2012

Emergency work to fix a collapsed sewer discovered close to London Bridge bus station has affected a number of routes.

Transport for London said the station will be shut until Christmas Eve.

During the repair work, buses will instead call at nearby stops on London Bridge. Commuters are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.

Bus routes affected are numbers 43, 48, 141, 149, 521, N21 and N343.

Taxis will also be unable to stop at the rank at the bus station but passengers will be able to catch taxis on Duke St Hill, close to the London Dungeon.
