“Extending the platforms at Sunningdale is a significant step towards completing our enormous £800 million Waterloo & South West Upgrade scheme, which will significantly increase the amount of space for passengers using the railway to and from Waterloo. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we’ve upgraded their station.”
