Battle for Waterloo


It will be a great shame if the recently constructed Eurostar terminal at Waterloo, London, is to close (NCE 21/28 August) and become a constant reminder of poor long term planning of public transport.

This terminal provides convenient direct access by train to the Eurostar service for a large population living in south London, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex and avoids the need to cross London.

Although there may be some time advantage on the high speed train this will not compensate for the inconvenience of getting to St Pancras and will add to the overloaded central London traffic. It may well result in more people taking to the air.
