presumably the 'w word' is 'where?' I'm going to go first and ask 'Where?'

Waitrose! Hope I'm not tempting fate.

Why is it so expensive to keep the platforms closed, what is the 3 million a year being spent on?

maintenance maybe? Whatever, its a scandal, it wasn't exactly a surprise that the International platforms became redundant, they could be in use now if there had been proper planning.

yes, but WHERE is the supermarket going to be? I can't think where in Waterloo there would be space for a supermarket? It seems a bit far-fetched to me and the Standard has gone downhill since beoming a freebie. Perhaps they've just made it up!

I remember seeing a development plan a couple of years ago that showed a supermarket on the corner of Waterloo Road and Baylis Road - where the Book Warehouse, Da Vinci's etc is now.

I don't understand how that would affect the re-opening of the platforms for the international terminals, though.

My only other thought is that the space below the platforms might be converted. I understand (although I can't remember where I read it) that if the ex-Eurostar platforms are brought into use, access will be from the concourse level, so the old sunken check-in, security and departure lounge areas, with their service spaces, would be available.
