London Bridge: demolition in progress
London Bridge station is to be completely rebuilt between 2011 and 2017. Two years in, the 20th century roof of the terminal part of the station was being removed and replaced with a new one. This view after removal of the old roof shows five bays of the iron arches that supported the original 19th century roof.
London Bridge Station

London Bridge is a central London railway terminus and connected London Underground station. It occupies a large area on three levels immediately south-east of London Bridge. The main line station is the oldest railway station in London fare zone 1 and one of the oldest in the world having opened in 1836. It is the fourth-busiest station in London, handling over 50 million customers a year.
As of 2018, London Bridge is served by Southeastern services from Charing Cross and Cannon Street to destinations in southeast London, Kent and East Sussex and is a terminus for many Southern commuter and regional services to south London and numerous destinations in South East England. Thameslink services from Bedford to Brighton are expected to resume later in the year.
In 2013 a major rebuild began of the station to increase the number of through platforms, the rebuild was completed in 2018.
