South West Trains have stepped up their publicity around the closure of the Chessington Branch between the dates of the 5th and 28th of August. During this period ALL TRAINS will be replaced by an “Enhanced Rail Replacement Bus Service” to join the main line at Worcester Park. Passengers are being advised that it may add an extra 45 minutes to a journey.
The closure is part of a refit of Waterloo station that will permit trains of up to 10 carriages to run in to London Waterloo from Chessington in December 2017. In order to complete the work platforms 1 to 9 at London Waterloo will be closed and the old Waterloo International platforms opened to add additional capacity.
Full details can be found at the South West Trains website, we will keep you updated here on Chessington Community Matters.
