Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have always said that once the initial Night Tube network was up and running, TfL would keep it under review and would hope to extend it in future. I was pleased to be able to announce with the Chancellor that some London Overground services will, within the next few years, become part of the Night Tube service.

TfL is working up detailed plans and hopes to launch Overground weekend 24 hour running on parts of the East London line. These plans are still in the very early stages, and of course, TfL will work closely with staff, local stakeholders and communities in order to understand any concerns and mitigate any impacts, while also meeting Londoners' demands for extended night-time transport services.
