South West Train services across the network will be severely reduced.

Hundreds of thousands of rail passengers are facing more than three weeks of travel chaos at the UK's busiest station.

The rail service advises passengers to take holidays, work from home, or travel at earlier or later times while the work is being carried out.

Network Rail chief executive Mark Carne has previously admitted he is "worried there will be challenging days" and accepted that "there are going to be days when the service is very hard for people".

All the trouble is because platforms 1 to 10 at Waterloo, one of Europe's busiest train stations, will be closed.

The project at Waterloo will extend platforms to allow longer trains to operate on suburban routes from December next year.

Stations and trains are likely to be much busier than normal between Waterloo and Winchester, Yeovil, Basingstoke, Woking, Guildford, Portsmouth, Dorking, Shepperton, Richmond, Staines and Ascot.

Also commuters using the Northern line service (Charing Cross Branch) of the London Underground can expect some delays, as well as the London Overground services at Clapham Junction.

Steve Montgomery, managing director of First Rail, said: "We have exciting plans for the South Western rail franchise and these new trains are an important step on the way to delivering an improved journey experience for our passengers".

The work will be ongoing over the August bank holiday weekend, when a number of other stations are also undergoing large construction projects.

Network Rail said it carries out major engineering work on bank holidays as up to 50% fewer passengers use the railway during those periods.
