London commuter chaos: Rail misery ahead as Waterloo closes platforms

Passengers have been warned to prepare for “unprecedented disruption” on train journeys into London this month as Network Rail embarks on its biggest ever schedule of engineering works, reports The Guardian.

Half of Waterloo station’s platforms will be closed between 5 and 29 August for major rebuilding works.

According to the London Evening Standard, there could be delays of up to an hour at intermediate stations to and from London Waterloo. South West Trains will be particularly affected and passengers are advised to avoid changing at Vauxhall and Clapham Junction.
