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.

  • Nick Reeves As much as we have an amazing bus system in Camberwell, I think it is vital to open the southeast up with an underground station. As it gets more and more built up, and it is, the traffic situation is going to get more and more congested.I think its a no brainer....

  • isabella cairney I have lived in the old Kent rd. for 20yrs and it is awful how busy the traffic has got as well as the amount of people Southwark council have moved into the area. You cannot get on a buss in rush hr and when you do it is dangerous as you are crushed in like sardines in a can. I so so hope the old kent rd will be part of this bakerloo line. I have though about going to the EU re the traffic fumes we are inhaling on a daily basis. The hight levels of polution from the traffic need to be monitored and something must be done. The old Kind Rd has been neglected for years - Southwark really need to do something about the area.

    I live in Avondale Sq Old Kent Rd, why have we not had information re the new bakerloo line through the door asking for our thoughts. I found out from a friend who lives in Lambeth?

    A Bakerloo line down the Old Kent Rd means so much to the residents, another transport link (tube) will mean another mode of much easier. I hope this is not all talk!

  • Christopher Marsh The overground that currenly serves Peckham Rye and Queens Road Peckham is completely inadequate as it is nearly ALWAYS delayed and more often than not closed at weekends for what seems like never ending engineering. Camberwell doesn't even have that option! The Bakerloo Line has to come via Peckham to continue the area's much needed regeneration and it needs to come much sooner than 2030. MUCH sooner.
