London Bridge Station
Architect: Grimshaw Architects
Project completion: 2018
London Bridge, the first train station to open in London, is the fourth busiest in the country, bringing around 56 million passengers into the city each year. It has undergone a £1 billion improvement programme that will allow more trains to travel through the station and attract even more passengers.
David Bonnett Associates has advised Network Rail and the design team throughout the process, ensuring that the completed station, with its new concourse and platforms, will meet current standards on accessibility while ensuring that previous access arrangements were not compromised during the construction phase.
All entrances to the station now have step free access and every platform can be approached by lift and by escalator. Toilets are located on the lower concourse. In addition there are accessible toilets on platforms 1-9, operated with a radar key.
All station staff are offered training in the requirements of those with access needs and wheelchairs are provided to help getting around the station. Generous seating, internally and externally, provides resting spaces for travellers.
This project was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2019

RIBA London Building of the Year Award 2019
RIBA National Award 2019
