Network Rail has submitted its plans for investment from 2014-2019 to the Office of Rail Regulation.

Its five year outline details the investment on the Wessex routes into Waterloo which will contribute to its plan to enhance "capacity and capability."

Their chief aim is to deliver 20% more seats during peak morning hours into London.

However the plan fails to detail any future for Waterloo International station which has sat dormant since Eurostar services moved to St Pancras in 2007.
