Mayor met Network Rail bosses earlier

Before tonight's rush-hour, Boris Johnson met executives from Network Rail. He said:

I know Network Rail are very apologetic for any inconvenience and delays passengers have experienced.

This is a vast project which will produce massive benefits for all travellers at and into London Bridge. It involves the total rebuilding of the oldest commuter railway station in the world.

There will inevitably be disruption from these huge improvements, but they have reassured us that they are straining every muscle to keep that disruption to an absolute minimum.

– Boris Johnson, Mayor of London

Disruption expected until 'at least' 10pm

National Rail Enquiries says that the disruption is likely to last until at least 10pm.

Passengers are being allowed to use their tickets on buses between London Bridge and East Croydon, Purley and Caterham, on London Overground and London Underground services on 'reasonable routes' and the Tramlink between Beckenham Junction and East Croydon.
