The construction procedure is inherently susceptible to to risks. Risk management is a crucial and essential part of project management on virtually all construction projects. Risk analysis is one of the core components of risk management that enables professionals to quantify and analyze risks that may pose potential threats to project performance in terms of cost, quality, safety, and time. This research was conducted to identify, and analyses risks associated with the redevelopment of London Bridge Station. A questionnaire was conducted to collect data. Risks affecting bridge construction project performance were identified through interviews conducted with engineers and managers involved with various construction projects. This research aims to investigate and analyze three main areas of the pre-construction stage of the project: the main processes, the risk record and the performance improvement. The objectives were to describe the main processes and the flow activities in each process, analyze the risk register of the main processes and argue the progress of the performance according to two issues: offsite construction and quality management. The results of this paper can help engineers, cost control managers, and project managers evaluate risks on their projects and avoid delays and cost overruns.The biggest redevelopment of its kind in Western Europe, London Bridge has been crucial to Network Rail’s Thameslink Programme that will transform north-south travel through London. The project has created two-thirds more space for passengers, enabling almost twice as many passengers to use Britain’s fourth busiest station every day. A redevelopment of this size has provided several construction and civil engineering challenges.as an important infrastructure upgrade it also came with unmovable deadlines – which have been met on time. The ability to meet those challenges has been due to a complex staging process and management of the risks surrounding design and construction.
