Thameslink Delivery and Execution Strategy


London Bridge Area Partnership partners worked in a uniquely close collaboration throughout to deliver 128 stages of construction since 2012, a staging plan that took over three years to perfect. This accommodated the re-signalling, track remodelling and construction of London Bridge station, construction of the Bermondsey Dive Under to the east and Borough Viaduct to the west – all while continuing to operate over 80 trains per hour alongside the construction sites. This staging strategy formed the blueprint for delivery; each stage of the programme created the next worksite for the station team, track team, civil engineering team or all three.
