It's no secret that the Overground will be coming to Edmonton Green in 2015, but what will it mean and when will it happen?
It'll all make our neighbourhood feel much better connected. Demand for London Overground services has grown by 160 per cent in the past five years, and when the east London section opened in 2010 overall demand quadrupled. So what will happen here, we wonder.
The station is already looking better and is judged by train freaks to be one of the best on the line.
TfL has ordered new trains, but in the meantime they say that the old rolling stick will be used, apparently in better nick than before though! The first of the new fleet of trains are due to arrive in Summer 2018.
The expected service frequency has not yet been announced, though additional services were mooted in the Mayor's Rail Vision for London.
Transport for London has appointed the London Overground train operator LOROL to run the service through Edmonton Green on an interim basis from its start on 31 May 2015 until November 2016 when the current London Overground concession is due to end.
The London Overground concession, including the Edmonton Green service, will then be re-let following an established bidding process.
Finally, we're wondering if the line will have any impaction property prices locally. In the 2011 London Overground Impact Study, the authors concluded:
"Data from Land Registry shows that house prices have increased by more than the average for east and south east London over the last two years as a result of the impact of the East London Line on accessibility of the surrounding areas."
So, all in all, this all sounds very positive. Loving it!
