About the project
London Bridge Station is a major rail hub within the heart of London on the south bank of the river Thames and at the foot of the Shard of Glass building. The station is undergoing a full major redevelopment which is an extremely prestigious project, fraught with logistical planning.
The concourse bridge decks will span the open concourse area of the new station, allowing more line to pass through the station. The concourse bridge decks are made up of 3 or 4 spans of simply supported decks for each rail line. Each bridge deck consists of six plate girders braced and tied at the ends with trimmer beams. Once installed, the beams will be mass filled with concrete and fitted with platforms, rail lines and canopies.
“The management team have been pro-active and have worked with us to improve the process at each stage, resulting in time and safety improvements.”
Mark Howard - Delivery Director, Costain.
