South West London now better connected than ever thanks to the London Overground


For Clapham Estate Agents James Pendleton, one of the main appeals of South West London is the area’s excellent transport links.  A recent development to London’s suburban rail network has seen Clapham, Wandsworth and Battersea connected to new areas of London; a fantastic array of venues and London attractions are a short train ride away from leafy streets and independent businesses.

9th December saw a momentous change take place in the daily lives of South West London commuters with the unveiling of the London Overground extension linking Clapham Junction with Surrey Quays.  The new stretch of line passes through Clapham High Street and Wandsworth Bridge Road before reaching the UK’s busiest station with its varied local and national connections.

This new development marks an exciting time for South West London.  The time it takes to travel from Clapham Junction into North and East London has been reduced, and Clapham High Street and Wandsworth Road are now a short and hassle free trip away from Shoreditch, Islington and Canary Wharf.  Business commutes, nights out on the town and shopping trips have never been easier, with a fantastic range of travel options now available to residents.

The new Overground orbital is the first to make a full loop around London since the Circle line, opened in 1884 and promises to bring thousands of passengers out of central London by eradicating the need to interchange at major central stations.  Those who travel from Clapham to Canary Wharf will now have a shorter, cheaper and more hassle free commute, and venues in the proximity of the newly converted stations should see increased footfall and publicity over coming months.
