London Bridge station to reopen 5 June

Route:
National

Following the incident on London Bridge on Saturday 3 June, on advice from the Metropolitan police, London Bridge national rail station will reopen on Monday 5 June from 5am.

Police cordons will continue to be in place until at least 8am which will impact on the ability of the station to operate normally.

As a result the national rail station will be exit only and disruption is expected owing to the restricted access.

Services may be subject to short notice alterations, especially if the cordons aren’t lifted as anticipated.

The station will be much busier than usual and there may be queuing systems in place. Passengers are advised to avoid London Bridge station during Monday’s morning peak if at all possible.

London Bridge itself - across the Thames - and nearby roads are also expected to continue to be impacted and normal walking routes may be closed.

Alternative walking routes across the river include Tower Bridge, Southwark Bridge, the Millennium Bridge (use Borough Underground station) and Blackfriars Bridge (use Southwark Underground station).

We strongly advise passengers to check National Rail Enquiries and TfL's website for the latest travel information before they travel.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Every day, there are more than 4.7 million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.

We are building a better railway for a better Britain.
