Network Rail Completes £4 Million Easter Upgrade To Boost Waterloo Capacity

Published on : Wednesday, April 19, 2017

01411f3d40804757bbbc7a0b987c2b86Network Rail has completed a £4 million upgrade at Waterloo station this Easter, as part of the £800 million Waterloo & South West Upgrade to boost capacity at the station by 30% by 2018.

 

Over 7,000 hours of work went into replacing key sections of track and installing a new signalling gantry at the station over just three days.

 

The new signalling gantry now extends over platforms 1-8, and has been carried out ahead of work to extend platforms 1-4, which Network Rail will undertake during a three-and-a-half week part-closure of Waterloo station in August 2017.

 

Becky Lumlock, route managing director at Network Rail, said: “The £4 million investment we have delivered this Easter weekend brings us another step closer to boosting the capacity at Waterloo by 30% for passengers.

 

“I’m pleased to see that our Railway Upgrade Plan is continuing to make a real difference in providing more space for passengers and making the railway more reliable. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we have carried out our work.”
