New station control office unites rail staff at London Bridge as concourse opening approaches

Published on : Friday, June 3, 2016

1The first piece of the new London Bridge station has come into use after more than 240 railway staff moved into new station offices over the bank holiday weekend, including a state-of-the-art control room. The move marks the first piece of the new station to come into operational use, with the first half of the stunning new concourse opening to passengers in August.


Network Rail station manager Denis Kirk said: “For the first time at this station we now share a single office with our colleagues from the train operators. Video screens mean the shift station manager now has a perfect view of the concourse, which means we’re no longer so reliant on radios. Everyone is right there with you and gives you an immediate response when needed.”


“It’ll make a big difference to our passengers as we are now able to provide a safer station environment and provide our passengers with the latest service updates more quickly, which overall will provide them with an improved passenger experience and a station that suits their needs.”


“Over one weekend we moved 240 operational staff from our old office on Tooley Street into our new home at the station. It was an immense piece of work following months and months of planning and it’s a tremendous achievement that it went so smoothly.


The new concourse at London Bridge, which is being constructed as part of the Thameslink Programme, will unite the Southeastern and Southern sides of the station under one roof for the first time and the new control room will provide a similar level of integration with operational staff. More than 50 million people use the station every year.
