Engineering Work Overruns, Bringing Waterloo to a Halt

Travellers at London’s Waterloo Station were brought to a standstill this morning (November 19) as engineers working on South Western Railway tracks announced that there would be severe delays throughout the entire day on all trains coming into the station.

Most commuters were aware that there was overnight work planned on the tracks in Surbiton, however the intended completion time was 4:30 AM, but this has now been extended to the ‘end of the day’.

Kaitlyn George, a student at Imperial College London, was unable to commute to get to Waterloo from Winchester and therefore was unable to make it to her lecture. She expressed her anger to me via Twitter, saying ‘this type of thing is becoming a daily occurrence for me, making it almost impossible to get the best out of my degree because I can never make it into university’.
