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, some councillors have been petitioning for a route that only benefits the residents and councillors of Camberwell and Peckham area, ignoring a swath of densely populated and under-developed areas of Old 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

  • Festus Moffat More capacity and options for commuters are needed in an area that can support housing for London. The current rail links through Denmark Hill are already over crowded with trains unable to keep to the timetable due to the weight of passengers getting on the trains at peak times.

    New tube links will add capacity and allow growth.

  • Stephan Winklbauer I fully support the Old Kent Road Extension.

  • Simon Jones I 100% support the extension of the Bakerloo Line through the Old Kent Road. That area desperately needs improved transport links.
