The station closed on 22 December 2007, reopened on 27 April 2010 for a preview service to New Cross and New Cross Gate, and from 23 May 2010, the latter service extended to West Croydon / Crystal Palace operated within the London Overground network.[6] A new gated northern access fronting Cornwall Street has been added, easing interchange with the Shadwell DLR station, whilst the rest of the station was also heavily refurbished.[7]
