The redevelopment has completely transformed London Bridge station. A concourse has been created at street level that connects all the platforms via lifts, stairs and escalators, making the station fully accessible for the first time.
All the platforms have been realigned, providing additional tracks for through trains and allowing a full Thameslink service to operate at peak times. The platforms were widened to cater safely for expected growth in passenger numbers, and new escape stairs were provided at the east end of the station. Full-length steel canopies provided weather protection and also allowed daylight to penetrate to the concourse.
