More than 240 staff have moved to new station offices at London Bridge; the first part of the new station to come into use.

The new offices include control room and Network Rail says this is the first piece of the new station to enter operational use. The first half of the new concourse opens in August. The station is due to be completed in 2018.

Network Rail station manager Denis Kirk said: “For the first time at this station we now share a single office with our colleagues from the train operators. Video screens mean the shift station manager now has a perfect view of the concourse, which means we’re no longer so reliant on radios. Everyone is right there with you and gives you an immediate response when needed.”
