Video footage shows London Bridge demolition

3 Oct 14 Network Rail has published time-lapse footage (below) showing the scale of demolition work taking place beneath London Bridge station.

The capital’s oldest rail terminal is being completely rebuilt as part of the £6.5bn Thameslink programme.

The footage shows the demolition of the 19th century brick arches underneath London Bridge station's platforms 10 & 11 between 12th and 15th September 2014 to make room for a new concourse the size of a football pitch.

Work to rebuild the station is being carried out in phases to keep the station open for business.

The first part of the new station concourse at London Bridge will open in 2016, with the entire concourse complete in 2018.
