East London Line Clapham Junction service delayed

Leela: I don't know what you did, Fry, but once again, you screwed up! Now all the planets are gonna start cracking wise about our mamas.
Hermes: I'm just glad my fat, ugly mama isn't alive to see this day.
Farnsworth: Enough about your promiscuous mother, Hermes! We have bigger problems.

This is Lou Baker's hour. Brockley Central's resident ELL refusenik will be glad to learn that a train he doesn't use will not start running to a place he doesn't want to go, for a few months later than originally hoped.

London Reconnections reports a statement from TfL, which says that the service to Clapham Junction won't start before the end of 2012:

We are delighted that funding for the London Overground extension to Clapham Junction has been reconfirmed following the Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) announcement. Although early projections indicated that the project would be complete by May 2012, it has never been a part of the Olympic transport plans.

The timescales for the project were pushed back pending the outcome of the Government's CSR. We have also had to take account of the restrictions on construction work being carried out before and during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which have also affected the programme. We now anticipate that the project will be completed by the end of 2012.

Thanks to Mike.
