"London's stations are changing massively both on the ground and from the sky, and there's more to come," said Simon Kirby, Network Rail's managing director for infrastructure projects."

He added: "As well as providing some spectacular images which we are happy to share, aerial photography is extremely useful to us to see these complex developments from a bird's eye view."

The images show the photovoltaic panels on the roof of Blackfriars Station. Installation recently reached the half-way point.

At London Bridge, the photos show the impact of the Shard. They also capture the preparatory work for the demolition of the roof over the terminating platforms which will be dismantled this summer.
