London Overground train arriving at the new station

Transport

A new Overground station will be built at New Bermondsey on the East London Line phase 2, 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 with one station, South Bermondsey, at the northernmost tip of the site and one bus route, P12, serving the site.

After considerable work with local, regional and national government over a number of years the scheme will strengthen these links by delivering:

  • A new Overground station on the East London Line between Surrey Quays and Queens Road Peckham
  • Two new bus routes, one serving central London and one linking the site to Lewisham
  • New cycling and pedestrian routes as part of the Mayor’s Quietways proposals linking into the wider Sustrans network
  • A direct route through the scheme linking South Bermondsey rail station and New Bermondsey Overground station
