London Bridge service faces August shutdown

London Bridge station will be closed to Brockley trains for nine days in August. TfL writes:

From Saturday 23 until Sunday 31 August there will be engineering work at London Bridge National Rail station. This is while Network Rail rebuild the station as part of the Thameslink Programme to increase capacity and improve connections. The Tube station will not be affected. 

London Overground, Southern and First Capital Connect customers will be affected by service changes during this nine day period. An enhanced London Overground service will operate between Crystal Palace and Canada Water during the morning and evening peaks to meet increased demand. 

Weekday services between Brockley and Canada Water are expected to be busier than usual for this time of year, especially in the morning peak. For more information about the Thameslink Programme, please click here.
