The Bakerloo Line Upgrade & Extension (BLUE) will dramatically improve transport links, relieving the load on the bus and Overground network. The extension will also deliver thousands of new homes and jobs in Southwark, boost the local economy and benefits the rest of London.
Cllr Kieron Williams, Leader of Southwark Council, said: “The message from London is clear: the capital’s prosperity hinges on the Bakerloo line extension, alongside other key developments. It’s not a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’.
“Despite difficult economic times, it’s full steam ahead for Old Kent Road. Over 30 per cent are new social rent homes meaning families in desperate need of secure and suitable housing can plant proper roots in the area, benefitting from the investment in public services and community projects that new developments bring.
“The Bakerloo line extension will supercharge this sustainable growth, with thousands of new homes people can actually afford.”
