London Overground night services will start operating from December on Fridays and Saturdays along the East London route between New Cross Gate and Dalston Junction via Surrey Quays, Canada Water and Rotherhithe.

At Canada Water the Night Overground will connect with the Night Tube service on the Jubilee line.

The night service will be extended to Highbury & Islington next year.

Jonathan Fox, TfL’s Director of London Rail, said: “The East London route is one of the most popular parts of the London Overground network, particularly late in the evening. Expanding night services to this key part of London Overground will make it easier for customers to enjoy the vibrant night time culture that East London has to offer, supporting the economy in this much-loved area of the capital. The Night Tube has already provided a boost to our economy and supported thousands of permanent jobs. We hope the Night Overground will build on this success even further.”
