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.

  • Owain Hughes This would result in extensive regeneration for the area by finally giving it a 21st century link to central London

  • Anonymous With the increase in development in Stratford, the Docklands and with Crossrail it is ridiculous to neglect Camberwell which is only one mile from Westminster.
    The property boom over the last two years has meant that a lot of professionals working in the City now live in Camberwell and unfortunately the Overground is not sufficient.
    Better transport links are vital to the local economy.

  • Anonymous Being more connect with London's travel network can only be a positive thing. Both in terms of reducing peoples's journey times and would open up this area of London to those who previously would not consider due to the poor travel connections boosting the local ecoonomy.
