How the Bakerloo line extension could benefit New Cross

How the Bakerloo line extension could benefit New Cross

Find out about our vision for New Cross if the Bakerloo line is extended to New Cross Gate station.

Our vision for the New Cross area

We have been working with architect agency 5th Studio and urban designers We Made That to develop a practical vision for the area. 

  • We looked at how we could maximise the benefits to New Cross Gate station and the immediate surrounding area. This is called a station opportunity study. 
  • We explored the benefits to the wider area around New Cross – extending as far as Kender Street, Surrey Canal Road, Rolt Street and Deptford High Street. This is called the New Cross Gate area framework.

We have engaged with residents

We have spoken with local residents to get their thoughts about the area and its opportunities.

You can read the New Cross area framework document for details on:

  • how we have engaged with the residents and other stakeholders
  • how we will take advantage of the benefits of the Bakerloo line extension.

Next steps for our vision of New Cross

The New Cross area framework and station opportunity study will be reported to the Mayor and Cabinet meeting in April 2019 for approval. Check back here for more information after the meeting or sign up for emails.
