Bakerloo extension to Hayes will be challenged
Published Friday, 18 October 2019
A proposed extension of the Bakerloo line to Hayes will again be challenged by Bromley Council in its response to TfL’s latest consultation.
Councillor Colin Smith, Leader of Bromley Council said, “Whilst we remain strongly supportive of the extension to Lewisham, mindful of the opportunities this will bring to the sub-region, it is extremely disappointing to put it mildly to have to respond to yet another consultation about extending the Bakerloo Line to Hayes when this has already been resoundingly rejected and TfL have been briefed to that effect.
The TfL proposal would also deny direct access to London termini to a vast swathe of Bromley residents living along the Hayes Line corridor, with long established commuting patterns, many of whom have purchased their houses locally at great expense to do precisely that.”
