Bakerlooisham – The Bakerloo Line Extension … Here It Comes
It is fantastic news that Transport for London (TfL) will begin a consultation on extending the Bakerloo Line to Lewisham. Extending the Bakerloo Line would be good for London and great for Lewisham. It would reduce journey times and increase capacity on our desperately over-stretched transport. It would boost our local economy and it would help us build the homes we so desperately need. However, it needs to happen soon, 2029 is too long to wait, and it needs to go all the way to Catford and into Bromley, not just to Lewisham. The south of the borough needs to have greater accessibility into central London and Bromley.
It is important that as many people as possible take part in the consultation survey. Let TfL know just how important it is to all of us in Lewisham, and that we need this to be completed as soon as possible. We also need the Bakerloo Line extension line to go to Catford and beyond. Wouldn’t also be great to have a station at Ladywell too?
Detailed information about the Bakerloo Line extension can be found here.
