 Summary:
 As a central London railway terminus and London Underground station complex, Waterloo is Britain's busiest railway station by passenger usage. It is also the 15th busiest passenger terminal in Europe and the 91st busiest railway station in the world. In order to satisfy growing needs for transportation the complex was facing tremendous expansions throughout its long history, but was at the same time largely constrained by the surrounding urban fabric. Two opposing development demands in the midst of bustling London resulted with a rather chaotic urban situation, with the patchwork of station facilities usurping and affecting public urban space. This study includes historical analysis of the complex, spatial analysis of its surrounding urban area, as well as access and flow analysis. The main objective is determination and evaluation of effects that intensified people flow can have on urban infrastructure and public spaces.
