you will notice that some of the panels have been cleaned from inside, so i suppose everything will be alright when it's finished.

Like london marcus said, I don't believe it will be open to the general public before 2013.

That's a pity! Would have been an excellent attraction for the Olympics! That being said I don't think you'd want your first month of observatory patrons to be thousands of tourists from around the world all in a span of very little time!

Last time I was in London the core had just started rising! Can't believe what getting off the tube at London Bridge will be like now.

Externally it looks like it could open next month but I'm sure there's plenty to do on the inside.
