The Gallery | Track work begins on Borough Viaduct

The first ballast and rails have arrived on site at Borough Viaduct in central London as the next stage of the Thameslink Programme gets underway.

The structure, built in 2012, will be used by Charing Cross trains from January 2016, while the old viaduct is relaid to carry future Thameslink services.

In addition to the delivery of raw materials, a new signal gantry was swung into place near Waterloo East and old sleepers and track have been removed from around London Bridge station.

The £6.5bn Thameslink Programme is designed to transform north-south travel through London by 2018.
