"Detailed travel advice for passengers will be issued prior to the closure taking effect," said a statement from London Underground in September.
The line closure will add half an hour to some tube journeys, making some passengers think it might be worthwhile cycling some or all of the way instead.
To this end, Transport for London’s Cycling Centre of Excellence has started the tender process for design consultants to design a new 250 space cycle parking facility to be constructed at London Bridge.
This is a joint venture with Waterloo bike shop, On Your Bike. The bike park will use be situated within the railway arches between Weston Street and Stainer Street, directly behind the On Your Bikepremises at 52-54 Tooley Street.
According to an email seen by BikeBiz.com, the Cycling Centre of Excellence is "finalising a review of bike hire and pool bike schemes and are in discussion with range of stakeholders at Waterloo and London Bridge with a view to introducing ‘bike stations’ at both locations providing a range of facilities and services for cyclists."
