Waterloo upgrade works in August 2017

Damian has received information from Network Rail on the upgrade work due to take place at Waterloo between 5 - 28th August this year.

The work to deliver additional capacity at Waterloo means that platforms 1- 9 will be closed between these dates, so significantly fewer trains will run across the South Western rail network during this time.  Dear Mr Hinds,

New passenger information has just been made available, including a leaflet, and more information will be available on the SWT website
