Newham’s Overground service the best, say passengers

London Overground, which services the Stratford, Forest Gate and Manor Park areas, is confirmed as one of the best performing railways in the UK, with a 92 percent passenger approval rating in the latest national survey, up from 85 percent in autumn 2010.

It is number one in London and the South East where the average score was 83 per cent and is followed by c2c which achieved 91 per cent.

Later this year, work to extend the line in South London and connect Clapham Junction with Surrey Quays and Dalston Junction will be complete, and the London Overground will orbit the entire city.
