Investment, improvement and modernisation at London Overground
4 December 2013 • Author(s): Peter Austin, Managing Director, London Overground Rail Operations Ltd
Since 2007, London Overground Rail Operations Ltd (LOROL) has been actively transforming the London Overground network, modernising the service, improving facilities and providing a better, safer, more environmentally efficient and comfortable experience for its customers. And six years on, LOROL’s delivery of Transport for London’s (TfL’s) extensive investment in the network is proving to be a real winner.
The last couple of years, in particular, have been busy for LOROL. The challenge of unprece – dented passenger numbers during the London 2012 Olympic Games and the opening of the much anticipated East London Line extension last December to deliver the Capital’s first orbital railway in nearly 130 years are two key projects that the LOROL team has successfully delivered throughout this time. And with the project underway to increase the capacity of the network with the introduction of five-car trains from December 2014, the successful invest ment, improvement and modernisation activity at LOROL is on track to continue.
