Will TfL review the compensation arrangements for regular passengers of the Gospel Oak to Barking London Overground Line following the admission by Network Rail that further weekend and complete closure of the line over a number of weeks will now take place after the re-opening of the line on the 27th February 2017.

TfL has expressed its frustration on behalf of its customers to senior Network Rail management and has demanded a robust plan and assurance that the delivery of the remaining works poses minimum further disruption to customers and no additional cost to TfL or farepayers.

TfL will, of course, review compensation arrangements to ensure that regular users are not penalised by any further closures. The detail of this will be worked out once we have examined Network Rail's revised plan.
