Poor planning blamed for Thameslink project delay
November 23, 2017



BRITAIN’s National Audit Office says that the £7bn Thameslink project to upgrade routes through London has a realistic prospect of delivering value for money, but the Department for Transport (DfT) and Network Rail (NR) now face a challenge to introduce the new expanded services, as they failed to start preparation early enough

The Thameslink programme involves:
  • two phases of infrastructure works carried out by NR at a total cost of £5.5bn: phase one covered the redevelopment of Blackfriars and Farringdon stations and was completed on time and budget in 2011 at a cost £2.4bn; phase two began in 2013 and included rebuilding London Bridge station, track remodelling, and resignalling with a budget of £3.1 billion.
  • a £2bn fleet of 115 new trains supplied by Siemens and two new maintenance depots, and
  • a combined Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern (TSGN) franchise awarded to Govia Thameslink in 2014 and running to 2021

Doesn't look right without yellow on the front. It looks like a train from anywhere in Europe. I don't like change.

Found out about the 710's (the photos above) apparently there's an current order for 45 train sets from Bombardier with the first ones due to enter service upon completion of GOBLIN electrification, May 2018. Further proposals were put out earlier this year to allow for increased capacity on NLL &WLL too.

TfL said today that the contract has been awarded to J. Murphy & Sons Limited to deliver step-free access and station improvements at Hanwell, Iver, Langley and Taplow stations on the west of the Elizabeth Line route. May be ready in time for tfl expected takeover in May 2018..

Euston and Old Oak: What will HS2’s London deals involve?

https://www.constructionnews.co.uk/c...ontentID=18534

Quote:
HS2 Euston: What’s involved?

Stage A would see six new HS2 platforms built in a new station to the west of the existing terminus.

Stage B1 would construct a further five HS2 platforms within the current terminus, which would see the total number of platforms cut from 18 to 11 by 2033.

Stage B2, which was not part of the HS2 bill, would aim to transform the mainline station under Network Rail’s CP6 control period, which runs from 2019 to 2024.

HS2 Old Oak: What’s involved?

The new HS2 station to be built at Old Oak Common is part of one of the UK’s biggest regeneration areas, with plans in place to transform 134 ha of west London under a £29bn project.

The station will be built on the site of the Old Oak Common railway depot, just south of Willesden Junction station, and is expected to feature six high-speed platforms as well as up to 12 others serving other lines.
