Victoria Station Roof Refurbishment


The office building I work in is built on top of Victoria Station. My desk faces south and looks out over the roof of much of the station, including platforms 15-19. Strapped in scaffolding for the best part of a year they have now finally started ripping the old roof off.

The current structure is very old. The Brighton Side concourse was originally finished around 1860 and subsequently rebuilt in 1908 and so the underlying structure has been there for over 100 years!

Now they are manually ripping the roof off. A slow process...
