A new Overground station will be built at New Bermondsey, between Surrey Quays and Queens Road Peckham. Planning permission has been granted and 1/3 of the enabling works have been completed.
The new station is part of a wider programme of transport improvement which will open up this area of London. 40,000 people live within a 15 minute walk of the New Bermondsey site but currently transport connections in the area are poor.
After considerable work with local, regional and national government over a number of years the scheme will strengthen these links by delivering:
