The site was shut on Tuesday for emergency repairs with early estimates suggesting it would be shut until Christmas Eve.

But it is now expected to stay closed for another 12 weeks.

A Transport for London spokesman said: “It has uncovered that the problem is worse than initially thought and will therefore take significantly longer to repair.

“During these emergency works London buses will continue to call at nearby stops on London Bridge instead.”

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

Taxis will also be unable to serve the rank at London Bridge bus station but from Christmas Eve passengers will be able to catch taxis from the temporary ranks on St Thomas Street
