New bridge across Borough High Street
This is the new railway bridge built to carry the additional Thameslink tracks through London Bridge station. This south side, seen from the main road, is an inspired architectural form; the far side of it is a more conventional deep girder. It was launched across Borough High Street on the bank holiday weekend of 30 April - 2 May 2011. The bridge weighs about 1200 tonnes. Source: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
