It appears to be 'in limbo' - but general local opinion is that the viaduct will be built - eventually. If you look at the market you can see that the money is being thrown at areas that will not be threatened by construction [west of the current overhead line], and several of the properties in Park Street that will be affected have fallen empty and remained empty over the last year. The save-borough-market web site is no longer available and exact timing is the last thing locals will hear about. Test drilling in local streets took place at various times last year.

Meanwhile [scurrilous rumour time] it seems the trustees are selling off the 'family silver' [i.e local property] to pay for the restoration that has gone horribly over budget.....

hmmm, I am not a trustee any more so I cannot claim any current insider knowledge but there do seem to be a lot of For Sale signs up around on BM properties.

I do seem to recall that for various reasons it was difficult for the market to borrow money, so cashflow would be pretty important...

That's interesting I wonder what happened to the save borough market area web site

At the potters fields inquiry Julie greer told Mr. village that the themes link viaduct had consent,
She didn't say by who,and I don't think that means the whole project does.
and I don't think that's the same as getting the go ahead
I thought the design was still under review ,along with other issues

Apparently Network Rail are in the process of submitting another application to the Office for the Deputy Prime Minister and hope to have an answer within the next six months. If permission is granted they are likely to start work on Thameslink 2000 in 2006.

(See my separate Thameslink 2000 post for an update on this and how to view and comment on the plans).
