Overground: Your questions answered

Transport for London is running a drop-in information centre to let you know what's happening in Dalston.

It will be held at the Centreprise Trust at 136-8 Kingsland High Street, London, E8 2NS, on Tuesday 11 November, between 2pm and 9pm. 

TfL representatives & contractors will be on hand to answer your questions. 

Work is now well underway to extend the East London line and is on target to start services from Dalston Junction to New Cross, Crystal Palace and West Croydon, by June 2010.

TfL are now working on the extension from Dalston Junction to Highbury & Islington.  When this link opens in 2011, passengers will be able to connect to the Victoria Line, the National Rail network and existing London Overground services.

To build this link, a short section of new track is required between Dalston Junction and the North London line.  Following consultation with local authorities, TfL has agreed the best way to construct the track is to replace a Victorian cast iron deck under Dalston Lane, Kingsland High Street and Boleyn Road.
