What’s happening now?
Since May 2013, we’ve been closing the platforms in phases as they are demolished and rebuilt. New platforms 7 to 15, two-thirds of your new street-level concourse and new entrances on St Thomas Street are now open. Platforms 1 to 6 are currently closed for redevelopment, with the next new platforms scheduled to open in August 2017.
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 station from 3 September 2017
There will be some operational changes at London Bridge station until December 2017, after we open platform 6 to allow more Charing Cross trains to call at London Bridge.
Until December, platforms may feel more crowded than usual and passengers will be 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 to passengers until this extensive work is finished in 2018. This is only a temporary measure while London Bridge remains a work in progress.
Ticket acceptance changes from Sunday 3 September
Following the completion of the upcoming improvement work at London Bridge from 3 September, Charing Cross trains that are currently unable to stop at London Bridge during peak times will once again be able to call.
Therefore, interim ticket acceptance and automatic refund arrangements for the Tube and buses will be partially withdrawn. Changes vary by train operator. Journeys via the following Tube stations and bus routes will no longer be 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.
And we’re not finished yet…
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
- More reliable, more frequent journeys through London
- Many more shops and cafes.
