Your Sunday morning best of Londonist weekly round-up, this week sponsored by Institution of Civil Engineers.
Is London Bridge station London's best building project?
It’s a toughie, but Londoners had better get thinking on who gets their vote for the Londonist people’s Choice Awards – this is a special category for London’s best infrastructure project, with the winner chosen by you.
One of the frontrunners is the complex redevelopment of London Bridge station – you can expect reduced delays, eased congestion and even a concourse as big as Wembley Stadium when it's finished. If you think London Bridge stands a chance at the London Civil Engineering Awards, check out the voting page here.
