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 Three Rivers and Watford in Hertfordshire. 30 per cent 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 most London Overground stations and introduced 65 new trains. The route from West Croydon to Dalston Junction was opened in 2010, extended to Highbury & Islington in 2011 and further extended from Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction in 2012, completing the orbital route around the Capital.
