London Bridge, the UK’s fourth busiest station, underwent a total transformation to become a station fit for the 21st century – a world class iconic station blending fully into the redeveloped London Bridge quarter. While the old station was about getting people to the edge of the city to continue their journeys, the new station is supporting the development of London Bridge as a destination in itself. The new station has been designed with more space and easier connections to other rail and Tube services to handle the expected passenger growth into the future.
The new spacious street-level concourse enables passengers to access all the platforms from one place and new entrances and exits provide better routes to and from the station. Every platform has been completely rebuilt and is 25% more spacious than previously – to accommodate longer, twelve car services through every platform.
