The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has today announced that Night Overground services will begin in east London on Friday 15 December, making travelling at night even easier for thousands of Londoners.
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. This will help Londoners working through the night as well as those enjoying east London’s thriving nightlife.
The launch follows the success of the Night Tube which has seen more than nine million journeys and contributed more than £170 million to London’s economy in its first year.
The announcement comes as London Overground celebrates 10 years of successful service. Since its launch in November 2007, London Overground has grown to be the third largest rail operator in the UK, providing a vital transport link for millions of Londoners, creating an orbital route around inner London and serving 23 of the Capital’s boroughs, as well as southern Hertfordshire.
