The Thameslink Programme
As part of the £6 billion Thameslink project to improve services and train stations in and around London the Thameslink network is currently being upgraded and extended. Due for completion in 2018, a brand new link via tunnels at St Pancras will transform North-South travel across London by enabling passengers travelling on the Thameslink to travel across London without changing trains.
