The Thameslink Programme is transforming north-south travel through London. This infrastructure and new trains investment programme will increase capacity on one of Europe’s busiest stretches of railway.

London Bridge Station Redevelopment

Network Rail have rebuilt a bigger and better London Bridge station for the 56 million passengers who use it each year, with new platforms for more trains and a new concourse, linking Tooley Street and St. Thomas's Street. The new concourse has unified the station for the first time so passengers can access all platforms from one place.
