Extend the Tube to Camberwell & Peckham

Camberwell and Peckham are poorly served by public transport, and in particular by the underground system. Most residents have to travel into central London by bus or train, with long journey times. As the Mayor of London considers his 2020 Vision and plans for major infrastructure investment in the next decade, we call on him to commit to extending the Bakerloo line to Camberwell and Peckham in order to improve public transport for current and future residents, and to help bring jobs and growth to this part of London.

  • Emily Graham Yes please - it's pretty shocking how poorly served this lovely and very central area of london is in terms of the tube.

  • Jacob Hatton I live in Kennington which means I'm extremely well served, but walk down the road for a couple of miles and suddenly there's nothing for the residents. It seems to me that Camberwell and Peckham deserve the chance to be linked up with Waterloo and other hubs by the Bakerloo line.

  • Neal Jackson The rich of North London are covered.
    The rich of South West to East London are covered.
    The poor of South London are ignored; buses being good enough, if not too good, for them.
    The overland rail track to Camberwell lies abandoned. reconnect it. The oft planned Northern Line extension to Camberwell and Peckham got as far as the Underground platform sign for it (before it was blacked-out). Is that stretch of line to be used exclusively by MI5 and the American Embassy?
