The Overground train route linking Stratford with north and west London is doubling the frequency of its services.

The announcement by Transport for London this week, will see four trains per hour at peak times as part of the 2012 Games legacy.

It follows the East London line extension in February, which sees services run between Dalston Junction and Highbury and Islngton. As part of the new timetable it will have eight trains per hour.

TfL's rail division managing director Mike Brown said the improvements would "play a key role during the Games in bypassing central London to get spectators to the Olympic Park".
