I noticed this morning that the new, Piano-designed concourse roof has made an appearance at last from within the station as a section of the old one has been taken down near to the top of Platforms 12 and 13.

Wasn't the station regeneration supposed to start only after the Olympics?

They've been quietly assembling it over the top of the old roof for some weeks now. New, white columns have been appearing in the station. It's then just a case of removing the 70s structure from below to reveal it.

That's the rebuilding of the rest of the station along with some works to complate the Thameslink 2000 upgrade.

The concourse remodelling goes hand-in-hand with The Shard, the bus station and The Place ( on the site of the old Seifert tower).

I was in London last weekend and saw the tower with my own eyes...So far it looks very good and i am generally very impressed, the cladding looks a bit poor at the moment but i reckon once it is finished it will be much better. Any way great tower for London!!

London Bridge station on the other hand is one massive fail!!!!

It reminds me of the Bank of America Tower in NY from the first photo.
