The iconic MI6 building is set to return in "Skyfall"
as filming is scheduled this weekend on Vauxhall
Vauxhall Bridge Filming
4th February 2012
The "Skyfall" crew
will continue their London based shooting schedule today around
Vauxhall Bridge, the famous roadway over the Thames that faces
the real-life SIS building that doubles for MI6 in the James
Bond series. Last seen in "Die
Another Day", the iconic building
looks like it will make its comeback as the base of operations
for M and her 00-division.
Transport for London have confirmed that bus
route 87 will be diverted with delays between 06:30 and 17:30
on Saturday 4th February due to filming taking place. The following
day, helicopter filming operations will
take place in the vicinity of Vauxhall Bridge. A contingency
date of the 12th February has been allocated in the event of
bad weather disrupting operations. Filming will take place between
17:00 and 22:00, during which navigation will be controlled
by a PLA Harbour Service
Update: Due to the cold snap in the UK and snowfall,
filming at Vauxhall Bridge was postponed until the contingency
plan of the following week.
In a couple of weeks, all directions of Horse
Guards Avenue, Whitehall Court and Whitehall Place will be closed
further "Skyfall" filming on Saturday 18th February.
