Blackfriars to close in March 2009

Blackfriars Underground station is set to close from 2 March 2009 until late 2011 as part of Network Rail’s £350 million Thameslink revamp of the station.

Balfour Beatty will carry out the works which include lengthening platforms across the Thames, a new entrance on the south bank of the river and the redevelopment of the station.

London Underground’s director of strategy and service development Richard Parry said: “During this time, District and Circle line services will not stop at the station and customers are advised to use nearby Temple and Mansion House stations.”

Blackfriars Underground station opened in 1870 and is one of the oldest stations on the network.
