Update 26th September 2017: LINKED is still currently going through a period of maintenance. Therefore four of the twenty original transmitters not currently not present on the route, or not functioning at the time of writing.
Transmitter #1 was removed as part of the Olympic Park developments and has not yet been replaced. Therefore there is currently only one transmitter to the west of Leyton Tube Station. However the first transmitter will be reinstalled in a new site in 2010/11.
Transmitter #11 situated on Connaught Road, by the northern part of Dyers Hall Road, has been removed for repairs.
Due to ongoing problems, Transmitter #12 at Grove Green Road, close to Leytonstone Tube Station, is currently not present. We hope to have this re-installed in the future.
Due to a traffic accident, Transmitter #14 at the corner of Kingswood Road and Wallwood Road has been damaged, but will be re-installed in the future.
Because of the problems with these last three transmitters, at present you can only hear one transmitter between the southern part of Dyers Hall Road in Leytonstone and the Green Man Roundabout. However the rest of the transmitters are functioning well, and it remains possible to have a good experience of the LINKED project.
