  • Thameslink Programme

    The government-sponsored Thameslink Programme is transforming north-south travel through London

  • When the Thameslink Programme is completed in 2018, journeys will be improved, with new spacious trains every two to three minutes through central London at peak times.

    Improved connections will give you better travel options to more destinations than ever before and new track and modern trains will make your journeys more reliable.

    The programme also includes the rebuild of London Bridge station to create more space, with great facilities, making it easier to use.

  • During the work, there will be a rolling schedule of changes to train services. For the latest information and to sign up for email updates please visit the Thameslink Programme website or follow us on Twitter @TLProgramme.

    We're transforming the fourth busiest station in the country by adding platforms, to allow up to 18 Thameslink trains an hour, and rebuilding the concourse, so passengers can access all platforms from one place.
