The few times I’ve tried to get something from the TfL site about what’s going down with infrastructure projects I’ve never been all that impressed with what I’ve found.
I’m not sure if that is the case with London Connections but what ever the reason for the blog it looks like they are keeping an eye on what’s what.
I particularly like the three year diary on the right which links to what should be happening by when. Shame that it seems it’ll take until January 2009 for Oyster pay as you go to reach all overground stations:
Following the Mayor’s offer to provide £20m to help fund provision and installation of smartcard readers, station equipment and back office support systems, an outline agreement by all the Capital’s Train Operating Companies to implement Oyster PAYG across their networks in Greater London was announced on 31 January 2007 by the Association of Train Operating Companies. It is planned to offer PAYG with three TOCs from January 2008 with the remainder to follow by January 2009.
[page 66 of the agenda]
And looking further it doesn’t look like we in SE London are on the list for early adoption.
Anyway if you’ve got an interest in what TfL are doing then London Connections could be the blog for you.
