Answered By: 
The Mayor

Very initial discussions have taken place between the GLA, TfL, LB Southwark and LB Lewisham in relation to the preparation of an Opportunity Area Planning Framework for Old Kent Road. Additionally, TfL is leading on work around the Bakerloo Line Extension with boroughs around the route.

 

Various funding mechanisms to finance the extension, including mechanisms to capture the uplift in land values, will be an integral part of the various studies.
