A south easterly view down platform 1 shows the demolition of the 19th Century South Eastern Railway offices along Tooley Street in full swing. Platforms 1 and 2 were due to close on 29th August 2016, to allow reconstruction of this side of the station to commence. © David Glasspool

Most Charing Cross trains are scheduled to call at London Bridge from Monday 29th August 2016. Nine days prior to this, a "preview" of the new works at the station took place. This view shows the light and spacious concourse beneath the platforms which, when finished, will stretch the entire width of the station. The huge concrete pillars support the track bed and these replaced numerous brick arches which were demolished to make way for the concourse. This is a southward view towards St Thomas Street. © Maidstone Man

Platforms 8 and 9 are on the through lines to/from Charing Cross. They are two of three additional "through" platforms provided at the rebuilt station. As a result, the number of terminating platforms has been reduced from nine to six. © Maidstone Man

Still at ground level, underneath the platforms, the indicator boards were already operational and showing train services. Those pictured here covered services for the terminating platforms, Nos. 10 to 15. © Maidstone Man
