Question

There is concern among Brent residents that TfL London Rail and LOROL (London Overground Rail Operations Ltd) may be considering diverting the service to Stratford permanently, and that services that currently stop locally in Brent at Kenton, South Kenton, North Wembley, Wembley Central, Stonebridge Park, Harlesden, Willesden Junction, Kensal Green and Queens Park would no longer serve Euston Station. Are you willing to act to safeguard this service?

London Overground's Watford Junction to Euston services were diverted to Stratford from September to November 2008 because of planned track upgrade works that took place on the Overground network. These services were popular and in response to a number of requests, TfL is reviewing the long term case for reintroducing some through services from Watford Junction to Stratford. Whilst the review will look at a number of options and service levels, there are no plans to abolish Watford-Euston services.
