In the London Bridge resignaling, the interlocking plants were so closely spaced that the entire area has to undergo comprehensive planning. It was necessary to rearrange the track layout, install a complete new signal system and develop a complete new timetable for one of the heaviest passenger traffic sections of the British Railways. The various stages of planning and implementation are outlined, indicating particularly the interdepartmental relationships necessary. The fact that the 1926 signaling was obsolete and the operation of commuter trains at near saturation levels has evolved made the project necessary.
