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.
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.
Four key reasons to support this:
• It serves the needs not just of Southwark but also Lambeth communities
• National facilities like Kings College Hospital and the Maudsley need better access for their patients and visitors
• It takes pressure off bus services using highly congested routes like the Walworth Rd
• It brings new opportunities for local employment
I support the extension of the tube via Camberwell.
