From 2018, up to 75m passengers a year will be able to travel through London’s oldest railway station. The project’s lead design consultant, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff in joint venture with Hyder, is working with Network Rail and Costain to increase track capacity from six to nine ‘through’ platforms and create an expansive new concourse with extensive new retail facilities.
Tom Smith WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff’s Global Director, Property & Buildings recently presented on the London Bridge Station Redevelopment at the Property Congress 2015 on the Gold Coast.
According to Mr Smith, the station redevelopment is part of a regeneration and investment program that has moved some of the City of London ‘south’ of the River Thames.

"WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff is proud of its involvement in the regeneration of the London Bridge Quarter. I hope this video successfully highlights some of the complex technical challenges that had to be addressed during this particular project and contributes to industry debate around sustainable urban regeneration."
