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.”
