Answer for Bakerloo Line Extension (4)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Based on the Office of Rail Regulation station usage estimates, in 2011/12 there were approximately 12,000 passenger boardings per day on the Hayes line between Hayes and Ladywell.

Passenger boardings at Beckenham Junction are not included in the above figure as services from this station do not currently use the Hayes Line.  

Extending the Bakerloo line would offer an increased level of service and overall reduce journey times to all central London destinations from stations on the Hayes line. Currently, six trains per hour use the Hayes line into London Bridge.  An extended Bakerloo line to Hayes could mean up to 15 trains per hour could serve this route. Up to 50 per cent more people could use the line to get to central London and Docklands - via the DLR at Lewisham.

The proposed extension to Hayes means that people who currently travel on the Hayes line into London Bridge and Cannon Street would need to change from the Bakerloo line. However, it would provide direct connections from Hayes to Waterloo, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus and Paddington.
