The ticket office in Shadwell, Wapping and Shoreditch High Street stations are facing the axe in plans revealed by transport chiefs.

A total of 51 Overground stations in London will be affected by the proposals drawn up by Arriva Rail and Transport for London which operate the line.

Arriva Rail say the closures will “represent an improvement on current arrangements in terms of quality of service.”

Rail union RMT are against the plans.

Mick Cash, RMT’s general secretary, said: Ticket offices play a crucial role at train stations.

“London needs to welcome its passengers, visitors and tourists not with a machine, but a welcoming and friendly ticket office who can provide a full range of services.

”This is just the latest attack on a properly staffed, safe, secure and accessible railway for all and RMT is determined to halt these plans in their tracks.”

A public consultation has been launched where people can give their views.

The consultation closes on October 11.
