Predicted Waterloo rail chaos fails to materialise
Commuters report relatively smooth journeys to London as major engineering work begins at UK’s busiest train station
Predicted travel chaos due to engineering work at the UK’s busiest train station got off to a muted start on Monday as commuters reported relatively normal journeys to work.
Workers heading for London had been told to expect reduced services on the first working day since platforms one to nine at Waterloo were closed on Saturday to allow work to take place until 28 August.

Clapham Junction quiet so far this morning and plenty of staff around advising people of where to go. No queues here so far @BBCLondonNews pic.twitter.com/6YNevbI5g0
So far so good, on a train to Weybridge even earlier than usual. Warnings must have worked as Waterloo station and train quiet #Waterloo pic.twitter.com/PUP39VpWsr
