London Bridge Station Redevelopment

Update on expected disruption

Network Rail have just launched Phase Two of the Thameslink programme, From now until 2018, this will include:

  • The complete redevelopment of London Bridge Station, with the largest concourse in the UK and better access to platforms via lifts and escalators
  • Major surgery to miles of outdated track and signaling to many routes that serve London Bridge and Blackfriars stations
  • A new fleet of state-the-art trains. Network Rail will carry out the work to the station and track in distinct phases, each having a different impact on train services.

There will be a number of shorter periods of disruption rather than all passengers being impacted for the full duration of the project. The biggest changes include:

December 2012: The London Overground extension opens 9th December and the timing of many of Southern’s services to and from London Bridge will be changing from 9 December as a result of the station works.

May 2013: Platforms 14-16 are taken out of use to enable redevelopment work. Some services will be retimed and platform changes required.

December 2014 to 2018*: Thameslink route services to and from central London diverted away from London Bridge.

2015 to 2016*: Services to Charing Cross unable to call at London Bridge station.

2016 to late 2017*: Services to Cannon Street unable to call at London Bridge station.

(*Latter timings subject to ongoing planning)
