Partnership key to London Overground transformation

Issue 6 2011 / 6 December 2011 /

In the four years since the launch of London Overground the team behind the unique operator-client partnership has transformed the network into a modern, reliable metro railway that London can be proud of as it prepares to host the 2012 Olympics.

Significant investment by Transport for London (TfL), the transport authority responsible for commissioning all public transport for England’s capital, combined with excellent operational delivery by London Overground Rail Operations Ltd (LOROL) has been the key to making it the UK’s highest performing rail network for the past seven consecutive months.

The seven-year London Overground concession, which LOROL started operating in 2007 on behalf of TfL, links 20 of the capital’s 33 boroughs.

It operates 938 trains each weekday, which is more than double the number at the start of the concession, and has quadrupled the number of passengers it carries each day to provide some 100 million passenger journeys a year.
