We recently consulted on proposals to extend the Bakerloo line beyond Elephant & Castle to Lewisham, serving Old Kent Road and New Cross Gate. Thank you to those who took part.

We received 4,899 responses to the consultation and a full report detailing our analysis of the consultation is available here

Our response to issues raised during the consultation will be published later this year.
