Evening Standard: " ‘M25 on rails’ boosts Mayor bid to run commuter lines"


Another orbital route across outer north London next?
(Er, no, not yet)
Link to Evening Standard


"London's first orbital overground train link — dubbed the 'M25 on rails' — opened to rush-hour passengers today, as the Mayor stepped up his campaign to take control of more commuter lines.

!The completion of the London Overground line between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction means people can make short journeys around the capital without having to travel via central stations already at full stretch.

"... The Overground now has 77 miles of track and 83 stations, from Watford to Croydon and Richmond to Barking. A trip on the orbital section lasts about 90 minutes, but cannot be taken uninterrupted, with changes at Highbury and Islington and Clapham Junction."
