Lon­don Bridge up­grade closer to com­ple­tion

Rail (UK) - - Network -

The lat­est phase of the Lon­don Bridge sta­tion up­grade was com­pleted by Net­work Rail on Septem­ber 2, fol­low­ing an eight­day pro­gramme of en­gi­neer­ing work.

Track and sig­nalling equip­ment was in­stalled on the Can­non Street lines, while the Char­ing Cross lines through Lon­don Bridge were re­aligned through Plat­forms 6 to 9 and con­nected to the Ber­mond­sey dive-un­der.

At Lon­don Bridge, fit-out work con­tin­ues with lighting, ticket gate­lines and floor­ing in­stalled on the fi­nal sec­tion of the new con­course, which is due to open in Jan­uary 2018.

Dur­ing the pro­gramme, Lon­don Bridge, Water­loo East and Char­ing Cross were closed with trains di­verted to other sta­tions in the cap­i­tal. The fi­nal stage of the Lon­don Bridge up­grade will take place over the Christ­mas and New Year pe­riod, when the fi­nal sec­tion of the new con­course and Plat­forms 1-5 will be com­pleted and opened to the pub­lic.
