What’s happening now?
Since May 2013, we’ve been closing the platforms in phases as they are demolished and rebuilt. New platforms 6 to 15, two-thirds of your new street-level concourse and new entrances on St Thomas Street are now open. Platforms 1 to 5 are currently closed for redevelopment.
To see how the station looks now, please see the latest station map.
With the opening of the new street-level concourse, the way you move around the station has changed. This map shows your new walking routes for peak hours and all hours.

Changes to London Bridge from September to December 2017
There are some operational changes at London Bridge station until December 2017.
Platforms may feel more crowded than usual and passengers are requested to remain on the concourse until their service is announced. While we have robust plans in place to manage this, it may be preferable to travel from other London stations in the evenings, where possible.
Safety of passengers remains our number one priority. We’re working hard to minimise disruption until this work is finished in 2018. This is only a temporary measure while London Bridge is rebuilt.
Ticket acceptance changes from Sunday 3 September
Charing Cross trains now call at London Bridge during peak times.
Therefore, interim ticket acceptance and automatic refund arrangements for the Tube and buses have been partially withdrawn. Changes vary by train operator. Journeys via the following Tube stations and bus routes are no longer automatically refunded:
- Southeastern – Southwark, Waterloo;
- Southern – Charing Cross, Embankment, Southwark, Waterloo; bus route 15
- South West Trains – London Bridge, Southwark, Waterloo; bus routes 381 and RV1
- Ticket acceptance for Thameslink customers remains unchanged until January 2018.
The final countdown…
In 2018, passengers at London Bridge will benefit from:
- A completely rebuilt station with a huge new concourse
- Better links to the tube station and buses
- All 15 new platforms open and operational
- A fully accessible train station
- Reduced delays to services to and through the station as a result of untangling the tracks
