More than 100 “information sessions” will be held at London Overground stations over the coming weeks as part of Transport for London’s campaign to explain the need for upcoming closures on the service.
As announced in December, London Overground services will be suspended in February to allow re-signalling work to be completed as part of joint TfL and Network Rail work to “further increase capacity” on the service.
From Monday 19th February until Saturday 26th February 2011 (inclusive) services will be suspended between Richmond-Camden Road, Euston – South Hampstead, Gospel Oak-Upper Holloway and Shepherd’s Bush – Willesden Junction.
On Sundays 20th and 27th February trains will run to Euston however there will be no services between Richmond-Stratford, Gospel Oak-Upper Holloway and Shepherd’s Bush-Willesden Junction.
The closures are part of a programme works which will see longer and more frequent services on the Overground.
TfL say alternative bus and train services will operate during the closures and passengers will also be able to travel at no extra cost by Tube or national rail services through zone 1, providing they travel from a Tube or national rail station near their usual London Overground station.
The sessions will run from 24 January until 15 February.
