Time-lapse video of Waterloo upgrade
Though taking a little longer than expected, Network Rail has fully reopened Waterloo station after completing one of the largest and most complex upgrades in the station’s history. See here for a time-lapse video of the work that took place…
Over the three and a half weeks of the upgrade at Waterloo there have been 180,000 hours worked; 1,270 metres of track laid; 230 metres of pre-cast concrete installed; 160 meters of new platform built; and 7 miles of cable laid.
“The work we have completed in three and a half weeks this August will benefit passengers for decades to come,” said Becky Lumlock, Route Managing Director at Network Rail. “The longer platforms will create space for longer trains, making journeys more comfortable for passengers, particularly at the busiest times of day.”
