Closures will affect journeys over Christmas and New Year as Network Rail complete the rebuild of London Bridge station
As part of the continuing work at London Bridge up until January 2018, there’ll be changes to our services. Read more on:
Rebuilding London Bridge station
What is the Thameslink Programme and why do we need it?
What’s going on at London Bridge station?
Work to expand the station will be completed in 2018
- There will be nine new ‘through’ platforms – two of which will be dedicated to Thameslink services – and six new terminating platforms
- All platforms will have step-free access
- Station facilities will be improved with new shops and cafes
- There will be a huge new concourse, bigger than the pitch at Wembley Stadium
- Railway lines will be untangled so fewer trains will be delayed outside the station waiting for platforms to clear
What changes are currently affecting Southeastern services?
23 December to 1 January 2018 - Major work taking place that will severely impact our trains
- Services will not run to or from Charing Cross, Waterloo East, Cannon Street, London Bridge, Deptford, Greenwich, Maze Hill, Westcombe Park, New Cross and St Johns for the entire 10 day period from 23 December to 1 January
- On the three ‘working days’ from 27 December to 29 December, an amended timetable with a significantly reduced service will operate to Victoria, Blackfriars and Waterloo.
There will be some additional high speed services and non high speed tickets will be accepted to Stratford International and St Pancras International on these three days only, between Kent and Stratford or St Pancras.
