London Bridge station improvements given the go-ahead

London Bridge station improvements given the go-aheadPeople seeking flats to rent in London Bridge are to see improvements to the local station following approval by Southwark Council, thus paving the way for an area-wide regeneration scheme.

Last week, Network Rail had its multimillion-pound proposals for enhancements to the London Bridge Interchange ratified by the council's planning committee, thus allowing it complete its Thameslink programme and deliver a cutting-edge facility for local residents.

It ties in with Sellar Properties' currently ongoing work to implement a new bus station, train station concourse and London Underground connections for London Bridge, in addition to a glass roof for the arrivals space and new ticket barriers.

Peter John, leader of Southwark Council, said: "New public transport hubs are hugely important in drawing people into what is a borough already becoming famous for large-scale regeneration projects.

"I'm delighted that further progress can begin now that the application has been approved."

These plans come as part of a ten-year regeneration programme with wide-reaching ambitions for the London Bridge Quarter, which will also encompass the large-scale creation of new jobs and major improvements to St Thomas Street.

Moreover, a system of high-quality signage is set to be installed to create consistency with the Bankside, Canada Water and Elephant and Castle regeneration areas, as well as the wider London walking network.

A comprehensive signage redesign is taking place across North Southwark, with the aim of achieving readiness in time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Mr John said the work is "interlinked with the vision we have for the borough as a whole - unlocking Southwark's potential to create and build upon sustainable communities".

Last month, the local authority celebrated the commencement of operations at the area's new Integrated Waste Management Facility, which is one of the most advanced of its kind in Europe and will aid environmental efforts in Southwark.
