Four month delay for Blackfriars Station rebuild

The hawkeyed Londonist has spotted an article in Building that reveals that the redevelopment of Blackfriars Station is running 4 months late and will now re-open in the Summer of 2012, cutting it very fine for the London Olympics.

Blackfriars is a key destination for Crofton Park commuters - when the project's finished it will allow for 2 more trains per hour from Crofton Park and exits on both sides of the river. The station will also be able to handle 12-car trains in future.

During the construction work, Blackfriars tube station is closed.
