Network Rail is rebuilding London Bridge rail station as part of the Government-sponsored Thameslink Programme. When the Programme is completed in late 2018, the station will have more space, improved connections to more destinations and more reliable services for both Londoners and visitors to the Capital.
London Bridge Tube station is operating as normal throughout the rebuild and the National Rail station remains open. However, there will be changes to some London Overground and National Rail services.
Certain Tube, bus, London Overground, DLR and Tram journeys will also be busier than normal.
The current period of major changes to services continues to August 2016. Details of when and how your journey could be affected are on the London Bridge upgrade travel advice page.

New travel options
The Thameslink Programme will increase travel options across London, helping to relieve congestion on other parts of the rail and Tube network:
- New, spacious Thameslink trains will operate a more frequent service through London Bridge
- Trains will run every two to three minutes in each direction through central London at peak times
- Direct links will be created to the new Crossrail line at Farringdon, and Eurostar and Southeastern high speed services at St. Pancras International
- Services between Gatwick Airport and Luton Airport Parkway will be improved
