Watch: Network Rail engineers install gantry at London Bridge

Engineers took advantage of the extra hour as the clocks went back last week to install a new signal gantry at London Bridge, in the shadow of the Shard.

The gantry spans 10 of the 11 tracks on the approach to London Bridge station and forms part of the complete rebuild of the station that is taking place over the next three years.

The redevelopment of London Bridge is part of the £6.5bn Thameslink programme, which is due to complete in 2018.

Footage was taken overnight on Saturday 25 and into the morning of Sunday 26 October 2014.
