London Bridge Prior to 10th January 2015
Re-development having commenced in December 2011 on the terminal side, London Bridge Station works moved over to the through platforms from Saturday 10th January 2015. That weekend involved the whole of London Bridge through platforms, Charing Cross, Waterloo East and Cannon Street being shut all weekend. From Monday 12th, trains started running through on the Charing Cross side without calling.
To record the situation prior to work starting, all of the pictures on this page were taken on 9th January by Colin Price.

The first stage up until May 2015 involves Up Charing Cross trains using the Up Passenger Loop through the station and Down trains using platform 4 (without stopping). Outside London Bridge the current 3 Up and 4 Down lines will be shut, with 1 Down becoming the down Cannon Street and 2 Reversible the Up Cannon Street. Down Charing Cross trains will slew over through clipped up point work to use 5 Down and Up Trains the Up Passenger Loop. This will allow demolition work on platforms 5 and 6.
Then in May the old 3 Up will become the Down Charing Cross and the old 4 Down will become the Up Charing Cross, which will continue through the alignment of the track on platform 5, to be slewed over at the Borough Market end to join the line over Borough High St.
This will allow construction of the Bermondsey Dive Under down towards Spa Road to get going in earnest, where the Up and Down Thameslink lines will go towards New Cross Gate, the Charing Cross lines dropping under them to avoid flat crossing moves.
(above) 465240 with 11:17 Cannon St - Cannon St on 3 Up along with 375819 and 375703 working 10:40 Ramsgate - Charing Cross on 6 Up, both lines will come out of use.
