About London OvergroundLondon Overground is the suburban network of rail services we manage in the Capital
The Overground travels through 21 of London's 33 boroughs, as well as Watford in Hertfordshire, Following the completion of the link between Clapham Junction and Surrey Quays, 30 percent of all Londoners are less than a 15 minute walk from an Overground station.
We launched London Overground in 2007 to provide better connections between areas outside of central London.
There are four routes:
Between 2007 and 2011 we refurbished all of the stations and introduced 62 new trains. The route from West Croydon to Dalston Junction was opened in 2010, and extended to Highbury & Islington in 2011.
On 9 December 2012, a further new route from Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction opened, completing the orbital route around the capital. The link includes 1.3 km of completely new track, along with existing rail lines, and serves six stations.
The new route provides better links for people in south London to destinations including Docklands, the East End, the City and Hackney, and to numerous onward connections from Clapham Junction.If you're interested in learning more about London Overground, watch The Story of London Overground on Youtube.
