Memories of when the IOC Bid Evaluation Team were driven between Stratford and Central London via the HS1 tunnels in a fleet of Range Rovers.

'Not Available' (might be a geo-locking problem).

More news on Waterloo redevelopment, taken from Railway Gazette:

http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/p...-waterloo.html

Consortium to plan 30% capacity increase at London Waterloo
18 Mar 2015



UK: The South West Trains-Network Rail Alliance of train operator SWT and infrastructure manager NR announced on March 18 that it had appointed a consortium of Skanska, Colas Rail, Aecom and Mott MacDonald to plan and undertake a four-year multi-million pound programme to provide a ‘step change’ in capacity at London Waterloo station.

The appointment of the contractors ‘is an important step forward in our commitment to boost peak time capacity by 30% by 2018’, said Christian Roth, Fleet Director of the South West Trains-Network Rail Alliance. ‘Waterloo is the country's busiest station, with 98 million people using it every year and South West Trains has seen passenger numbers double in 20 years.’

The contractors are to develop detailed plans which will then be submitted to the Office of Rail Regulation and Department for Transport for approval. The scope will include lengthening platforms 1-4 to enable the operation of 10-car trains on suburban routes, and reopening the former Waterloo International platforms for regular use by commuter services
