Even if you have signed the Back the Bakerloo petition, Transport for London (TfL) wants your views on the latest proposals, including an extension through Catford to Hayes and Beckenham Junction.

TfL is considering the case for a further extension along the existing Hayes line with stations at Ladywell, Catford, Lower Sydenham and all stations to Hayes and Beckenham Junction. Your views will help TfL to define the final proposal for the project which is expected to be confirmed late next year.

The proposal will mean connecting the proposed Bakerloo line extension tunnels to the current Hayes National Rail line between Lewisham and Ladywell at Wearside Road Council depot. The project would provide:

A train every 3-4 minutes direct to central London
Journey times cut by up to 14 minutes
Space for up to 27,000 more people every morning peak

There is also a chance to comment on other aspects of the detailed proposals, including the names of stations along the Old Kent Road, proposed tunnel route and TfL’s preferred worksite locations at New Cross Gate, Wearside and Old Kent Road.

To have your say and find out more, visit tfl.gov.uk/bakerloo-extension before Sunday 22nd December 2019. The question on the Hayes line proposal is question 9.

How can the journey time be cut by 14 minutes?
Currently it takes 24 minutes from Catford Bridge to Charing Cross. Seriously, will the same journey be reduced to 10 minutes?
