London Bridge station designs given go-ahead

Southwark Council’s planning committee yesterday passed a resolution to grant planning permission for Thameslink’s redevelopment of London Bridge station.

As part of the £6bn Thameslink programme London Bridge station plans involve building a completely new platform layout, to allow a metro-frequency of trains on the Thameslink route and the creation of Britain’s largest station concourse to reduce congestion.

New entrances on Tooley Street and St Thomas Street aim to make the station more accessible.

Formal planning consent is expected early next year. Preparatory work is expected to start in 2012 with the first major phase starting in 2013. The station will remain operational throughout the redevelopment and will be complete in 2018.
