In our 2017 consultation we set out a shaded area around Elephant & Castle and asked respondents to indicate where they considered a suitable location could be for a new Bakerloo line station within that area. The majority of responses stated that a Bakerloo line station should be located where the Northern line entrance and Elephant & Castle shopping centre currently are.

Taking this feedback into account we are proposing to build a combined station entrance and ticket hall for the Bakerloo and Northern lines. This structure would be built as part of the proposed new shopping centre development. This station would be fully accessible and, as part of the delivery of the Bakerloo line extension, would provide step-free access and improved interchange.

Old Kent Road 1 station and secondary tunnelling worksite

We are proposing a new station at the junction of Old Kent Road and Dunton Road. The station would be fully accessible and would provide step-free access from street to train. This is currently the site of a Tesco supermarket.

This site was the preferred option for respondents to our 2017 consultation.

Since that consultation we have developed our plans for how we could build the station and the extension. Firstly, our revised plans mean that we no longer expect to build the station into Humphrey Street. Secondly, in addition to building a station, we are considering using the Old Kent Road 1 site as a secondary tunnelling worksite to build the proposed tunnels between this station and Lambeth North. Using the site in this way could reduce the amount of time it takes to build and open the extension.

However, to do so, we would need the whole site, and the supermarket and petrol station could not remain on the site during construction.   

We would still require a primary worksite for the tunnelling for the project and our proposal for this is New Cross Gate (see factsheet 6).  

We would like your views on the possible name for this station. Suggestions have included Old Kent Road or Burgess Park. This is a popular nearby park and there is a history of tube stations being named after parks (e.g Green Park, Regents Park).   

Please note we reserve the right not to proceed with any of the suggestions received. We will liaise with the council on any suggestions.

Old Kent Road 2 station

We are proposing a new station at the junction of Old Kent Road and Asylum Road. The station would be fully accessible and would provide step-free access from street to train.  

This site was the preferred option for respondents to our 2017 consultation. Since the consultation this site, which was a Toys’R’us store, has become vacant. Our proposed site also includes the land at 812 Old Kent Road which lies between Gervase Street and Leo Road.  

Since the last consultation we have developed our plans for the route alignment and what this would mean for the station and platforms. There are no changes to the boundaries of the site we consulted on.  

We would like your views on the possible name for this station. Suggestions have included Old Kent Road or Asylum which reflects the nearby road of that name and the history of buildings in the area.   

Please note we reserve the right not to proceed with any of the suggestions received. We will liaise with the council on any suggestions.

We are proposing a new station at New Cross Gate to provide an interchange with the London Overground, National Rail services and local bus routes. The station would be fully accessible and would provide step-free access and interchange.  

In the 2017 consultation we consulted on our proposed site for the station being the site of the retail park lying on the west side of the existing New Cross Gate Rail station. A majority of respondents expressed support for this proposal.  

Since the last consultation we have developed our plans for the route alignment and what this would mean for the station and platforms. We have also developed our plans for tunnelling worksites in order to construct the extension. In addition to building the station, we consider this would be the best site for the primary worksite to launch tunnel boring machines. Our proposal for this site requires more land than we consulted on in 2017 and now includes Network Rail land to the north of the retail park. This land would enable new railway sidings to be built which would bring materials to the site and take away the spoil (excavated material) created from tunnelling. This would substantially reduce the environmental impacts of the construction works for the extension.   

At the last consultation we stated that there could be a potential loss of the Sainsbury’s supermarket during the construction period. As we have developed our plans for the site to incorporate the primary tunelling worksite, it has become clearer that the current supermarket, other retailers and petrol station would not be able to remain operational on the site during construction. For more information about our proposals for this site see factsheet 6 

New Cross Gate is our proposal for the primary worksite for the extension. It would minimise the duration of construction, required tunnel length and associated cost. We have considered two alternative sites for a primary worksite. These are an existing rail freight site at Hither Green and a new site at Catford on the Catford Hill Retail Park and Jubilee Grounds playing fields south of Catford Bridge station. For more information on these alternatives see factsheets 10 and 11

We are proposing a new station at Lewisham to provide an interchange with National Rail, Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and local bus routes. The station would be fully accessible and would provide step-free access and interchange.  

In the 2017 consultation we consulted on our proposed site to be the TfL Bus Stand and land at Thurston Road. There was positive support for this location.  

There are no significant changes to our proposals since the 2017 consultation.
