Bakerloo Line Extension

A possible Bakerloo Line extension is being mooted as part of The Mayor of London's '2020 Vision'. This petition is to demonstrate support of this proposal and asks for a more thorough consultation by those representing residents in all areas that might benefit (or suffer) from an extension of the existing service. So far, somecouncillorshave been petitioning for a route that only benefits the residents andcouncillorsof Camberwell and Peckham area, ignoring a swath of densely populated and under-developed areas ofOld Kent Road and surrounding areas that rely heavily on crowded bus routes.


This petition supports an extension to the Bakerloo Line that would benefit the South East London area, and simply asks that the all effort is taken to have an open discussion on the best route if an extension to the service is ever considered, rather than advocating one solution exclusively.

Please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.

Discussion

  • Anonymous In favour of the OK Road stop as a priority, then extend onwards.

  • Kevin Hogg The bakerloo line extension at old Kent road is much needed to help with the long term regeneration of Tower Bridge road and Old Kent road.

  • Roberta Schwarz Much needed SE to NW public transport link to take pressure off the traffic on this vital London artery. It will hugely benefit this underprivileged (not just in transport terms) part of the capital.
