New image of London Bridge Station revealed

This is a brand new image of the redeveloped bus interchange at London Bridge, due for completion in 2011.

The old PwC building at London Bridge station is currently being demolished, to make way for the UK's tallest building - the Shard. And economic woes be damned, because this project's got Middle East money behind it and pre-let agreements for the hotel floors and much of the office space. So it is happening.

Part of the works involve tearing down the entrance hall and bus station at London Bridge and replacing it with this shiny new one. Admittedly, it's quite hard to tell what the new designs will look like (they were subject to a bit of revision by the government's design advisers CABE) but it is guaranteed to be a hundred times better than the grubby brown wind tunnel that currently does the job.

This project is separate to the redevelopment of the rest of the station, which is taking place as part of the Thameslink project.
