Future options for extension could see the line reach to Hayes and Beckenham

Transport for London has released plans for the extension of the Bakerloo line, which could eventually see it reach as far as Bromley.

The line is to be extended to Lewisham in order to keep pace with the capital’s growing population, which is set to rise to more than ten million by 2030.

Four new stations could be created: two at Old Kent Road, one at New Cross Gate providing an interchange with London Overground and National Rail services, and one at Lewisham.

Future options for extension could see the line reach Bromley with stations at Hayes and Beckenham Junction.

Speaking to the Bromley Times before he became mayor of London in 2016, Sadiq Khan said he hadn’t ruled out the possibility of extending the underground to the borough.

He said: “Extending tube services on the Bakerloo line is an option, and something we want to look into, but it’s important to improve on the transport that’s already available.

“We’ve heard a lot about Crossrail, which connects the east and west, and Crossrail 2 to connect the north and south but what about a Crossrail 3 to serve suburban areas like Bromley?”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
