Engineering work brings last-minute twist to an already heavily disrupted schedule

Commuters already braced for disruption to services into London this morning have faced more last-minute changes after planned services into Waterloo mainline station were diverted.

As a result of over-running engineering work, services on Tuesday will now operate in and out of Blackfriers instead.

It had been planned that Kent services would run direct into Waterloo direct for the very first time - instead of regular routes to neighbouring Waterloo East.

Due to on-going work on the multi-billion pound Thameslink service, services to Charing Cross, Waterloo East and London Bridge for Southeastern passengers are all being diverted.

In addition, such will the pressure be on Cannon Street station this week, a queue system is being introduced simply to walk into the station terminal which, rail chiefs warn, could add an extra 30 minutes on to journey times.

Network Rail, which is conducted the work, and train firm Southeastern, have also advised there will be fewer services in and out of the county this week.
