Another Bit Of London Bridge Station Opens

In March I posted pictures of the opening of platform 14 and 15 at London Bridge station. Yesterday, the next two platforms 12 and 13 opened.

10 and 11 are now closed for rebuilding and should reopen in January 2015, according to this web page.

The list of key dates and service changes is given here, with finish set out in 2018.

Let’s hope it’s all worth it!

    • It’s still a bit narrow as they are working behind the hoardings.

      As someone, who wrote a lot of project management software, I’m rather pleased at how well they’re keeping most of it going, whilst they effectively rebuild a railway. It’s so much better than when they rebuilt some other stations and lines in the past.

      Like Crossrail, they’ve also learned how to use PR to keep passengers informed. There’s not been much grumbling about this long August closure in the media. So they may have annoyed some, but not that many.
