Platform testing completed

Platform testing completed

On Tuesday 5th March, we ran tests to assess how passengers will navigate through the station while it’s being redeveloped as part of the Thameslink Programme.

Platform 12 was narrowed with temporary barriers to test the width some platforms may be while we remodel and refurbish the station. The larger we can make the worksite, the quicker we can complete the work.

The information collected from these tests will help us to design our plans for the work: it won’t change the work that needs to be carried out, but will shape the way we approach it.

We’re really grateful to everyone who took part in these tests. Thank you for your patience. We’re sorry if you were inconvenienced in any way, but we’re confident that by running these tests it will help us understand how keep you moving through the station as we rebuild it over the next 5 years. also sign up to updates on this website.
