Passengers are reminded to check for changes to their journeys to and through London Bridge station as Britain’s biggest station redevelopment continues.

The Thameslink Programme will provide much needed capacity on the Thameslink route running north-south through central London.

When complete in 2018, more passengers will travel faster, further, and to more destinations than ever before.

The redevelopment of London Bridge station will unlock the full benefits. Work to rebuild London Bridge station has begun and station will stay open throughout the rebuild. However, as the rebuild continues, there will be changes to many services, with some trains unable to call at London Bridge.

Passengers are being reminded to check for changes to their journeys to and through London Bridge station when the first phase of Britain’s biggest station redevelopment project completes at the end of March. Between Friday 28 and Sunday 30 March, engineers will work round the clock to bring platforms 14 and 15 at London Bridge back into service, the first platforms to have been rebuilt ready for the increased capacity and additional services that will be available when the redevelopment of London Bridge completes in 2018.

There will also be many long term service changes. These include Thameslink route trains being diverted away from London Bridge station from 20 December 2014 to January 2018, as well as other short term changes that may also impact you.

The rail industry is making plans to help you get around during these disruptions. We’re also working out how these specific changes could affect your ticketing options, with the objective that you shouldn’t be out of pocket while we’re doing this crucial work. For now, if you buy an annual season ticket, please continue as usual and we’ll come back to you with an update very soon.

As the programme progresses we’ll share more detail in time to help you plan your journeys.

More information about the service changes you can expect is available at ThameslinkProgramme.co.uk.
