London Overground to run 24-hour trains from mid December
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has announced all-night overground services will begin in east London on Friday 15 December - just in time for the busy festive season.
The 24-hour services will operate on Friday and Saturday nights on the London Overground between New Cross Gate and Dalston Junction, extending to Highbury & Islington next year.
The new timetable will allow passengers to connect with Night Tube services, operating into London Bridge along the Jubilee Line, making it easier for Londoners working through the night as well as those enjoying east London’s thriving nightlife.
Mr Khan, said: “The Overground has transformed travel across the capital in the last 10 years, opening up areas of London and setting a new standard for quality of service on the rail network. We continue to improve the service every year and I’m delighted that we can bring night services to the East London line for the first time ever next month."
He added: "The Night Tube has proven such a success with Londoners, I know the Night Overground will help thousands more who are working through the night or out enjoying our capital’s nightlife.”
