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.

Discussion

  • Julia Hamson I support the extension of the tube via Camberwell where it will serve a large (and growing) residential community in need of improved transport links into the centre of town.

  • 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.

  • Sophie McCourt The volume of traffic around Camberwell is getting completely unmanageable - on bad days, it has in the past taken me up to an hour to get from E&C or Vauxhall to Camberwell, a distance of about 2 miles in each case. The roads just can't cope with the number of buses and cars on them. A tube would make a real difference.
