Sign up to campaign to bring a new tube station to our area!

Transport for London (tfl) are currently consulting on a possible extension to the Bakerloo line which could result in a new tube station close to Vassall in nearby Camberwell - but to make this happen resident's need to show their support for this plan.

Currently, there are two options currently being considered, one as mentioned to bring the extension to our part of South London, the other to run the extension close to the Old Kent Road. While there are advantages in both proposals, local Vassall councillors have made it clear that the Camberwell option could make a significant difference to local people.

Vassall Labour Councillors - Jacqui Dyer, Annie Gallop and Paul Gadsby - said:

"Like a lot of local people I use public transport regularly and it is clear that a lot our buses and other services are incredibly over stretched. Introducing a nearby tube station would significantly help residents in Vassall and surrounding area by giving them quick access to the tube network.

"The three Labour councillors strongly support the extension through Camberwell and recently handed in a petition to Lambeth council from resident's asking it to back these proposals."

If you want to put your views across about these plans, then you can sign the online petition here (before 7 December) and most importantly send your views direct to TFL here.
