London’s most famous food market fully reopens today after three hugely disruptive years as a building site.
The central Three Crown Square part of Borough Market near London Bridge station had to be closed in 2010 because of work on a £100 million railway viaduct.
The construction required the removal of the market’s Victorian glass and ironwork roof and dozens of traders were forced to move to temporary sites on a former car park.
Some warned that the Network Rail project could destroy the character of the market and 20,000 supporters signed a petition expressing their opposition to the work. But today traders hailed the “very exciting” restoration of a market that traces its roots back almost 1,000 years.
