Finally. Night Overground services will begin on 15 December.
The New Cross Gate to Dalston Junction line is the first part of the Overground to get 24 hour services on Friday and Saturday nights. The Night Overground won't call at Whitechapel until Crossrail works are complete. It will extend to Highbury & Islington in spring next year.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq 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. 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.
The Night Overground will connect with the Night Tube on the Jubilee line at Canada Water, and, from next year, Highbury & Islington on the Victoria line.
All Night Tube stations will be staffed at all times while trains are running.
