Work to convert platform 20 of Waterloo International for domestic usage has been completed.

Discussions continue between the Department for Transport, Network Rail and Stagecoach South West Trains to agree the most appropriate way to integrate the remainder of the former Eurostar platforms at Waterloo International terminal for use by domestic train services.

The Office of Rail Regulation issued a letter to Network Rail on 3 September 2009 which included specific requirements in respect of the use of Waterloo and Waterloo International stations as part of the Control Period 4 (2009-14) enhancements delivery plan for Network Rail. A copy of this letter is available at:
