The York Road entrance to Waterloo Underground station was reopened on 13 March 2020, following the completion of all necessary checks.

This entrance was closed to allow engineering inspections and subsequent maintenance works to be undertaken to the third-party residential building above.

Due to the works taking place at the interface between the residential building and the station entrance, it was necessary to close the entrance to ensure the works could be undertaken safely and efficiently.
