Both Sides Of The Bermondsey Dive-Under – 26th August 2016

The Bermondsey Dive-Under is on track to be completed by Spring 2017.

This is a visualisation of the completed structure.

These pictures show the dive-under from a train, running from London Bridge to Caterham on the line between the Millwall FC ground and the structure.

It’s now getting to look a lot like the official visualisation.

These pictures were taken from a train running into London Bridge from New Cross, on  the other side of the structure.

Crossrail may be the more spectacular and expensive project, but it has no intricate blend of old and new like the Bermondsey Dive-Under.

Thinking about the dive-under and when it is complete.

  • Will there be walking routes through the structures and in the green spaces?
  • How many extra small business units will be created underneath and around the arches?
  • Will the area be integrated into the surrounding community?

Judging on other Network Rail sites, I don’t think the space will be wasted.

I do think that railway arches are a unique city resource, that can create jobs and increase economic activity and also improve the local environment.

Network Rail ought to sponsor an award for the Best New Railway Arch Business every year.
