Question

Will the Mayor confirm what timetabling plans will be in place for the West Ealing - Greenford branch of the London Overground, when the current Greenford Line franchise held by First Great Western is incorporated into LO? Will he also dispel rumours that the service is being downgraded from 4 trains per hour in both directions, a service residents were guaranteed at the time of Crossrail's implementation, given trains will no longer be travelling directly to Paddington?

There are no plans to include the West Ealing - Greenford branch into the London Overground network. Service frequency on this route is the responsibility of First Great Western, which operates the franchise.
