Overground 'should run for 24 hours a day out of West Croydon Station'

LONDON overground trains out of West Croydon should run through the night, to complement the launch of 24-hour tube services.

This is the view of Croydon's Greater London Authority member Steve O'Connell, who spoke at a recent Mayor's Question Time at City Hall.

Mr O'Connell said: "The introduction of the night tube from next year will provide a cheap and safe way of getting home after a night out or indeed a night of shift work.

"However it must also benefit the areas of outer London which don't have tube stations. People living in areas such as Croydon need integrated bus and taxi services to get them home quickly late at night."

Mr O'Connell said an all-night service on the overground, which runs through Norwood Junction and into south-east and east London, would complete a "seamless service for outer Londoners".

Mayor Boris Johnson responded by saying he was in discussions with transport bosses in outer London boroughs, to expanding late-night transport.

From September 2015, tube trains will run through the night - but only at weekends. The 24-hour service will initially run on five lines; Jubilee, Victoria, Piccadilly, Central and Northern.
