"The Mayor of London's transport body also said it was committed to a second phase of the extension beyond Lewisham.
The proposed route, chosen over others, would go through Peckham and Camberwell."

I think it is such a shame that OKR won. Both
options should have gone ahead: Camberwell and its
environs are so poorly served by anything other
than buses. Even an extension to Denmark Hill and
nothing else would have helped enormously,
especially with all the new builds in and around
the Green and down W'worth Road.

I definitely wanted an extension through
Camberwell and Peckham too!I don't think that
second phase means Camberwell and Peckham, but
further extension to Hayes from Lewisham.
But there's more money to be made the OKR route, and
whether that's the right way to decide, I don't know.
I assume eventually whats at Elephant now will extend
down the Old Kent Road.

All a straight 'yes' as far as I can see if i remove what suits me and other tax payers in Camberwell, East Dulwich & Peckham...
I would be far more interested in what our elected Representatives are going to do to improve fixed track public transport up the Walworth Rd and through Camberwell?

Can't see the public transport situation from SE22 into SE1 via SE5 and SE15 getting any better soon (which is why I walk a whole lot more than I used to).
I get that you'd have liked to to Camberwell, but this thread is just sour grapes.
Plus anyone arguing that Peckham isn't well served by trains are crazy imo.

Of course people live in nearby, but these are not town centres like Camberwell for example. The residents of PC World and Toys R Us along with those of New Covent Garden flower market and the Nine Elms Lane car dealerships, have not been crying out for new transport or campaigning since the 50s for a tube extension.
There are established communities and tax payers
all around OKR. To read this you'd thinknot was
