It is the intention that all stations on the East London Line extension will be staffed, and numbers at each station will be depend on the nature and size of the station.

The extended East London Line will form part of London Overground, and through a £1bn investment will have upgraded and new stations and be integrated into the Underground network with Tube-style frequencies, staffing levels and standards of service.
