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.

  • Penelope Gretton King's College and the Maudsley Hospitals together with their associated buildings are an existing development which occupies a large area of Camberwell and yet they have no underground connection. Surely such world class, expanding facilities, with inevitably increasing visitor numbers, rate higher than any potential, as yet undefined, development on the Old Kent Road.

  • Andy Blacknell There is a march to support the Bakerloo extension via Camberwell on 29 November at 11am starting from Camb Green.

  • Jayne Jackson-Brown Kept in the dark for far too long. Inconceivable that this vibrant, diverse and hugely popular area is still so poorly served by transport infrastructure. We could literally be 10-15 mins away from Central London. No more excuses, we can't be sidelined any longer. Just do it. Please.

    just now Comments: The tube needs to serve areas already developed with slow accessibility to central London before areas capable of future wholesale regeneration are considered. Camberwell and its worldclass facilities (Arts School, Hospitals, Research facilities) deserve the tube
