Anger over Waterloo station reopening delays 'mess' after engineering works



Train delays at the UK's busiest railway station are expected to last until the end of the day following its reopening after engineering works.

 
Ten of the platforms at London's Waterloo were shut for almost a month for an £800m project to boost capacity.


The platforms came back into use on Tuesday but Network Rail testing then identified a signalling issue.


One of the companies affected, South Western Railway, said there would be delays of at least 10 minutes.


Buses are replacing trains on the Shepperton, Hampton Court and Chessington South branches and between Weybridge and Virginia Water.
