Bakerloo Line extension: Camberwell Underground
This petition is for those who are in favour of an underground station in Camberwell Green (as an extension of the Bakerloo line from Elephant & Castle station) sooner rather than later. I understand that this idea is already under TfL's 20 year plan but we've been promised a tube station since the 1920s!! This petition is for people who: -Think Camberwell is overshadowed by other areas i.e. Peckham, Brixton and Elephant & Castle. -Believe an underground station in Camberwell extended one stop from Elephant & Castle could provide countless benefits for one of the most vibrant and deserving areas in South London. Imagine this- Waterloo- 3 stops- Think Commuters. Doctors, nurses and other important staff going to one of Europe's most ground breaking and influential hospitals, King's. 5 stops- Charing Cross- Think Theatreland, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery. 7 stops- Oxford Circus- Think Shopping! Enough said. This extension would serve many who have had to get to Elephant & Castle station in order to get into Central London quickly. Yes, in Camberwell we have MANY bus routes: 12, 171, 436, 36, 345, 45, 35, 468, 68, 484, 176, 185, 42, 148. Maybe a tube station could save us from having to jump on a bus to Camberwell Green in order to take another bus to Elephant & Castle so we can get the tube into central London. If you think Camberwell DESERVES this station and could be helpful to all then please sign this petition and invite other Camberwellians, residents and supporters in Southwark to sign to.
