Hello South Norwood!

You've probably heard about Thameslink, it's the DfT's program that promises to further open up transport options in South London, making it faster and easier than ever before to get to central London.

The big question that's being asked and discussed at the moment is; which stations in South London should the Thameslink service stop at?

We believe that Norwood Junction is an ideal station, for a number of reasons:

  1. It will cut down commuting time - the Thamelink service would mean traveling from Norwood Junction to Kings Cross would take around just 15 minutes – that's a faster time to get to work, from work, and to all the fun that the big city has to offer!
  2. It will help South Norwood regenerate quicker – Increased accessibility will attract new residents to the area and in turn, attract more quality businesses to the area.
  3. Increased demand requires increased supply - Norwood Junction station is a busy station, a c20% YoY increase in traffic through the station demonstrates the increasing popularity of the area for commuters which is only set to continue.
  4. We're ready and waiting - There is a platform at Norwood Junction which is currently unused other than for trains passing through, meaning no extra platform or train line would need to be built for us to accommodate the Thameslink service.

If you'd welcome the Thameslink service stopping at Norwood Junction please sign our petition in support!

The more local support we have, the better chance we have of being heard and considered during these important discussions.
