Southbank plans face major rethink after Boris backs skatepark


Interestingly, half of the undercroft has already been reclaimed since the 80s - ie the small banks and the bank-to-wall section, which were reclaimed in the 90s (part of my LSD London Skates Dominate stickers was still visible on a ceiling light for around 20 years after though...). The slalom run, which is the main flat concourse, was made uneven, when the south bank centre management jackhammered random slabs during 1989, after which the 'repaired' surface was useless for slalom - there is now the concrete block blocking the run as well. The railings around the top of the big banks have been mostly removed, which is a modification to the original as well. So I'm not sure how much is left to actually save... It seems we are campaigning to retain a legacy structure that may not actually still exist.
