The Start of Something Big
Make no mistake, this is a big deal. I got invited backstage to what's happening at Blackfriars Station where they are putting the finishing touches to the only station to span the Thames. The re-make has been incredibly thorough and delivers a station that is fit for the 21st century, and unifies the North & South. What you are looking at, are the western platforms, converted from the straight through line to the terminating one, to help smooth the flow of trains from London Bridge onwards. I may well have more to say about it tomorrow, in the meantime here is a time lapse video of the construction.
