London Bridge redevelopment gets planning permission

Network Rail’s £500M redevelopment of London Bridge station has been awarded formal planning consent.

The plans are part of the second stage of the Thameslink programme to unlock much needed capacity on London’s rail network, and allow more services to travel to and through the capital.

Southwark Borough Council’s decision to grant planning permission means that from 2018 over 90m passengers a year - a 35m increase - will be able to travel through a brand new, state-of-the-art railway station.

Costain has already been appointed design and build contractor for the project.
