THE LONDON Overground train service between Gospel Oak and Stratford is already beset by delays just days after reopening following a three-month closure.

Fresh tracks, longer platforms and upgraded signalling equipment were installed during the closure but due to overhead cable problems in the Kentish Town West area there were no Overground services between Richmond and Stratford during yesterday’s evening rush hour.

There was also no service between Willesden Junction and Camden Road this morning.

Today delays continue on the line and Underground trains and London Buses are accepting Overground tickets via reasonable routes.
