East London Line

My post of 26 February indicated a likely June opening for the new East London Line. Local press coverage more recently has indicated May 23rd. Walking past the new Dalston station last week, and seeing the barriers open, I asked at the ticket office and got a rather hesitant “May 23rd…but it might be a few days earlier…”

I couldn’t tie them down any more exactly on when, nor as to why the hesitation.

The answer came today: Boris Johnson opened the line this morning, and immediately caused a political rumpus, or as The Times called it: Electioneering row as Boris Johnson opens East London Line at ceremony. Read it here.

(Don’t doubt that he knew what he was doing).
