The £6.5bn 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 ThameslinkProgramme.co.uk or follow us on Twitter, @TLProgramme.
The following are a selection of the projects that make up the Thameslink programme:
Completed in 2012, Blackfriars is the first station to span the Thames. The improvements allow longer trains, more frequent services and better connection with the tube.
From 2018, Farringdon will be an interchange between the north-south Thameslink route, the east-west Crossrail route and the tube with over 140 trains an hour.
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.
The new viaduct, which opened in 2012, runs alongside the existing rail bridge, doubling the number of tracks heading west out of London Bridge station.
