Commuters face severe rail disruption after almost half of the platforms at the UK’s busiest train station closed for a major overhaul.
Workers heading for London have been told to expect reduced services on the first working day since platforms one to nine at Waterloo were closed on Saturday until August 28 to enable engineering works to take place - writes metro.co.uk.
South West Trains have warned passengers stations such as Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Woking and Guildford will be ‘exceptionally busy’ as they will have fewer services running and customers could be forced to queue to get in.
Seven stations in south west London will be closed during the works, according to Network Rail’s website.
An average of 270,000 journeys are normally made to or from Waterloo every day.
