Answer for Bakerloo Line for Croydon

Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL carried out a consultation on the principle of extending the Bakerloo line to the south in late 2014.  Over 15,000 responses were received with 96 per cent of respondents supporting the extension.  Croydon Council responded to the consultation asking for consideration to be given to extending the line to Croydon. I met with the leader of Croydon on 24 September.

TfL is assessing this option along with many others that were suggested during the 2014 consultation and will be consulting on the route later this year.
