ELL Clapham Link Opens

ELL2, the new 6.76 mile East London Line link from Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction, is now open.

Four trains an hour will stop at Queens Road Peckham, Peckham Rye, Denmark Hill, Clapham High Street, Wandsworth Road and Clapham Junction, carrying up to 12.3 million people a year and completing a circuit around inner London.

The former South London Line service between London Bridge and Victoria via Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye has been withdrawn due to Thameslink work.

The service is experiencing minor delays this morning, due to an overrun on the engineering work last night.

This link represents the last of the East London Line works, until we get longer trains and a more frequent service in 2015.
