London Overground to run 24-hour services from 2017

There is good news for the borough’s night-owls after it was announced that the London Overground will soon run 24-hour weekend services.

From 2017, the East London Line will operate around the clock at weekends, running from Highbury & Islington or Dalston Junction to New Cross Gate, taking in the New Bermondsey Station once it is built.

This route includes stops at Rotherhithe, Canada Water and Surrey Quays.

Commuters will also be able to access the 24-hour Jubilee Line from Canada Water, where they can travel to Bermondsey, London Bridge and Southwark Tube stations.

Southwark Council leader Peter John said the move would go some way in “plugging the gap” in the borough’s transport network.

He said: “It is fantastic. It is a really good step forward. Anything that improves transport is Southwark is good news.”

Currently the Overground runs trains from Highbury & Islington until 12.10am from Monday to Saturday and 23.23pm on Sundays.
