RAIL hell is just weeks away for tens of thousands of travellers, it is confirmed.

London Overground plan wholesale changes to services on their east-west commuter network. And they will be spread over the next nine months.

They will mean changes to scheduled timetables as they press ahead with their �326m plans to upgrade the railway.

In the latest stage from April 20 to December there will be one less train per hour between Richmond and Stratford during peak times.

And on most Sundays the entire line will be shut down with travellers forced to use a replacement bus service which could add more than an hour to those taking longer journeys.
