NEW OPO ROUTE

HOMERTON Clapton Park Tavern - Hackney - Dalston Junction - Shoreditch - LIVERPOOL STREET
New OPO Route running parallel to Route 22 over this section, Clapton allocation reduced on Route 22 to fund this move
It was originally intended fro the route to terminate at Clapton Park Estare but this was not posible until " road modifications " had taken place

The timetable above is dated 28.10.72 therefore the route must have been curtailed at Homerton at a very late stage
A study of the October 1973 timetable reveals a duplicate to the above
