The new London Bridge Station is almost finished, following a five year rebuild completed in phases to allow the station to remain open throughout construction.
Since 2 January 2018 passengers are benefitting from a bigger and better station with new platforms for more trains, a new concourse and better connections.
The fully completed station will be modern, spacious and fully accessible – fit for the twenty-first century.
A bigger, more accessible station
New entrances on Tooley Street and St Thomas Street now better connect the surrounding areas to the station
Tube and bus links have been improved, while lifts and escalators provide step free access to every platform.
Meanwhile, the London Bridge Quarter development, which includes the Shard, has funded a new bus station and has built a new concourse on behalf of Network Rail.
This has improved the link between the terminating rail platforms and the bus station outside.
Huge concourse, natural light
The new concourse at London Bridge station is bigger than the pitch at Wembley Stadium with new retail and station facilities opening during 2018.
The concourse has unified the station for the first time so that passengers can access all platforms from one place.
More services, better connections
We have reconfigured the track to create nine ‘through’ platforms and six terminating platforms. This means fewer trains are delayed outside the station waiting for a platform to clear.
There are also now more trains to more destinations including a future connection to Crossrail services at Farringdon, providing links across and beyond London in all directions.
Keeping London Bridge moving
Work at the station will continue in 2018 on the Upper Concourse, Stainer Street and in preparation for more shops and cafe
Work at the station will continue in 2018 on the Upper Concourse, Stainer Street and in preparation for more shops and cafes to open. These works will take place on evenings and at weekends to minimise disruption.
