Project Information:

In the Wessex route, Network Rail operates some of the busiest and most congested rail lines in the country, transporting large numbers of commuters to London and other employment hubs in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire, as well as large numbers of leisure travellers to London and the south coast.

The Wessex Project will be about extending platforms to accommodate longer trains, providing step-free access at more stations, and continuing the huge investment at London Waterloo to provide more platforms for more trains and improve reliability. In combination with the delivery of an additional 150 new train carriages, this work will result in a 30 per cent increase in capacity at Waterloo in the peak hours by December 2018.
