Answered By: 
The Mayor

Yes. The West Anglia routes, which are due to be taken over by TfL in May 2015, will be operated by London Overground Rail Operations Ltd (LOROL).

It is stipulated in LOROL's contract that all staff, contractors and sub-contractors are paid the London Living Wage. This will also cover those working on the West Anglia routes.

Improvement work on the stations will be undertaken by contractors working for TfL and TfL requires contractors and sub-contractors to pay staff the London Living Wage.
