Blackfriars Station progress has a detailed feature [including this video] about progress on the redevelopment of Blackfriars Station, due to be ready for passengers in spring 2012. The article is timed to coincide with last week's opening of the station's new platforms.

A key station for Crofton Park commuters, it will be the first to span the Thames, with entrances on both banks and is being built as part of the wider Thameslink investment programme.

[Full disclosure: the construction company leading the project, Balfour Beatty is a client of Brockley Nick's employers]
