The Anonymous Widower

The Next Phase Of The Overground

An article in City AM talks about the choosing the new operator of the London Overground.

Quite frankly, I don’t care who runs the Overground, provided they do a good job. I also know that if they don’t perform, they’ll feel the fullforce of the Mayor’s boot or stilettos.

But what is interesting is these paragraphs, which detail changes to the system in the next few years.

And Liverpool Street revellers will be pleased to hear the contract will include “options” to introduce all-night services at weekends from 2017.

 TfL said frequency on the northern section of the line will be increased by 25 per cent next year, from eight to 10 trains. 

For me, late night services on the Overground are to be welcomed, as for example, it will make getting home after a late evening arrival into London easier. An increase in frequency on trains through Dalston Kingsland and West Hampstead will benefit everybody.

Long may the Overground spread its orange tentacles through the city, to enrich and ease the lives of Londoners and visitors alike.
