Overground to run weekend 24-hour service from Hackney to Lewisham

Beginning from December, a 24-hour service on select lines will run on Fridays and Saturdays.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced the New Cross Gate to Dalston Junction line will have an all-night service arriving in time for Christmas, before extending to Highbury & Islington next year.

Due to Crossrail work taking place at Whitechapel station, London Overground night services will initially not call at that station until works are complete.

"It will provide huge benefits to Londoners and visitors to our city, helping those working hard through the night and all those out enjoying everything London has to offer, as well as creating jobs and boosting our economy".

The move comes following the launch of the night tube service in 2016, which has widely been seen as a success so far, with more than 6.5 million journeys recorded on the service since its launch.

More than 6.5m journeys have been made on the night tube, since it began past year.

The announcement follows the launch of the capital's Night Tube previous year, which offers round-the-clock travel on the Victoria, Central and other lines.

TfL director of London rail Jonathan Fox said: "The east London route is one of the most popular parts of the London Overground network, particularly late in the evening".
