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.

  • 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.

  • William Lay Connecting south east London to the tube network is long overdue and something many forgotten residents south of the river have been waiting for.

    Option 2 via Peckham Rye is efficient, intelligent and cost effective.

  • 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....
