London Bridge £10m enabling works goes to Osborne

Network Rail has awarded Osborne the £10 million enabling works package for London Bridge Station.

The £800m redevelopment package is part of the £6bn Thameslink Programme and Osborne has formed a team with Mace and T Clarke to work collaboratively with Network Rail on the project.

The enabling works package will see Osborne removing and transferring key station services and assets, such as telecoms cabling, around the station by 2013 to ensure the programme starts on time.

Osborne rail managing director Dave Hooper said: “This is a fantastic project to be involved in. Delivering the enabling works with minimum disruption to the travelling public at one of London’s busiest stations is a challenge but one we are confident of fulfilling to help ensure the Thameslink Programme remains on track.”

Redevelopment work at London Bridge will include:

  • An increase in the number of tracks going through the station from six to nine and a reduction from nine to six in the number of terminating platforms. This will enable eighteen of the planned 24 Thameslink services per hour to call at London Bridge.
  • Space for around two thirds more passengers to use the service each day
  • Step-free access to all platforms from the main concourse
  • A new concourse at street level, with entrances on Tooley Street and St Thomas Street.
