£400M revamp for London Bridge station


RAILTRACK THIS week unveiled a £400M scheme to redevelop London Bridge station - more than trebling the cost of the upgrade outlined for the station in November as part of the Thameslink 2000 project.

The redevelopment includes adding two through rail lines and three platforms. The size of the station concourse will be trebled by dropping the main concourse three floors to street level.

Railtrack major stations asset development manager Robin Lovell said the redevelopment was necessary because passenger numbers at the station were expected to increase from 27M to 38M over the next decade.

The designs will go on public display for three weeks before they are submitted to Southwark Borough Council for planning approval. Lovell said he expected the project to go to site at the start of summer 2002.
