Public transport

From Sunday 9 December 2012, services on the new London Overground extension running from Clapham Junction to Surrey Quays will launch, completing London's orbital railway network.  The changes will link Southwark's transport network to a much wider network including the London Underground.

Trains will run every 15 minutes between Highbury and Islington and Clapham Junction via Surrey Quays, stopping at all stations in between including:

  • Denmark Hill
  • Peckham Rye
  • Queens Road Peckham
  • Surrey Quays
  • Canada Water

The new line will also bring links to new destinations and connections to other services including:

  • Canada Water - for Jubilee line services to Canary Wharf, the West End and Stratford
  • Shadwell - for DLR services to Bank and Canary Wharf
  • Whitechapel - for District and Hammersmith & City line services and future Crossrail connections
  • Shoreditch High Street - for the city
  • Clapham Junction

The new services will enable passengers to benefit from the more cost effective oyster payment system and reduced journey times.

South London Line


On 8 December the London Bridge to Victoria service operating on the South London line will terminate due to reduced platform capacity at London Bridge station as part of the Thameslink programme.

The introduction of the London Overground line will help in mitigating the effects of the closure of the South London line.
