Edward made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Edward to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Transport for London,

Please could you supply, in a non-proprietary electronic format, the distances between all London Underground, London Overground, DLR, Emirates Air Line, and all National Rail stations within the Oyster network. Basically, all stations that appear on the following map:

https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/track?intcmp=40400

I am only interested in the track length between stations. Ideally the data is presented in an MS excel file as a matrix so it is easy to calculate the total track length travelled between any two stations on the network.

Thank in advance you for you help.

Yours faithfully,

Edward

Dear Mr Jack

 

Our Ref: FOI-2485-1617

 

Thank you for your e-mail received on 2 April 2017 asking for the
distances between all London Underground, London Overground, DLR, Emirates
Air Line, and all National Rail stations within the Oyster network.

 

Request

 

Please could you supply, in a non-proprietary electronic format, the
distances between all London Underground, London Overground, DLR, Emirates
Air Line, and all National Rail stations within the Oyster network.
Basically, all stations that appear on the following map:

 

[1]https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/track?intcmp=40400

 

I am only interested in the track length between stations. Ideally the
data is presented in an MS excel file as a matrix so it is easy to
calculate the total track length travelled between any two stations on the
network.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and TfL’s information access policy.
I can confirm we hold some of the information you require.

 

Response

 

For the London Underground the distance between stations is shown on page
2 of the Working Timetables (WTT) published on our website:.

 

[2]https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publication...

 

In accordance with section 21 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply
you with a copy of the requested information as it is already accessible
to you elsewhere.

 

The length of the line between the two Emirates Air Line stations,
Greenwich Peninsula and Royal Victoria Dock, is 1,100m.

 

Please see the attached documents which gives the distances between London
Overground stations and DLR stations.  Please note that the London
Overground PDF lists the distance of each station on that branch from the
starting station, e.g. London Euston is marked as 0.00km, South Hampstead
is 2.41km from Euston, Kilburn High Road is 3.01km from Euston etc.

 

With regard to TfL Rail stations, please contact Network Rail for this
information:

to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
