Organised by the UK - SE:Surrey local network.

About this event

London Waterloo is Britain's busiest railway station and a vital part of one of the most heavily used railways in the country with passenger volumes of 234 million.

The upgrade costing £800m creates 30% more space, new signalling, new technology, longer platforms and the  introduction of new rolling stock including the launch of the Siemens Desiro 707 to South West Trains.

This will be a double-headed presentation. Chris Loader, Waterloo project lead, for South West Trains, will explain the challenging upgrade work at the station. Spencer Hufton, Head of Training at Siemens will then describe the new technology laden Desiro 707 electric trains.
Please book early and avoid disappointment for what promises to be a well attended event, which will be a IET Surrey Prestige Lecture.
