The London Transport Museum plays host to an exhibition which shows how the ambitious 10-year £7bn government sponsored Thameslink Programme has transformed the route and improved north-south travel through London.
About Thameslink Programme
The Thameslink Programme is transforming north-south travel through London. When the Thameslink Programme completes in 2018, journeys will be improved, with new spacious trains every two to three minutes through central London at peak times. Improved connections will give you better travel options to more destinations than ever before and modern track and trains will make your journeys more reliable. The government-sponsored Thameslink Programme also includes the rebuild of London Bridge station to create more space, with great facilities, making it easier to use.
