Commuters trying to get home from work on Monday face chaos.
Six platforms at London Bridge train station will be shut to departures.
Train bosses want hordes of spectators on their way to the Olympics to have as smooth a journey as possible.
The alterations will hit services run by First Capital Connect (FCC) and Southeastern train companies.
So platforms one to six will be exit only – for passengers stepping off inbound trains.
Bosses have told weary commuters to go to Blackfriars instead – 15 minutes away.
FCC customer service director Keith Jipps said: “London Bridge is best avoided throughout the Olympics because it will be exceptionally busy but on Monday evening our customers will not be able to get on to the platforms we use.”
