London Overground extension and Bridgehouse Meadows

Work on the London Overground extension between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction – including the construction of a new 1.3km section of railway which will pass alongside Bridge House Meadows and in between SELCHP and the Millwall FC stadium – is now complete. 

Bridgehouse Meadows is once again open to the public, after it was used by Transport for London (TfL) as their base of operations for much of 2011/12. As well as re-seeding the Meadow and planting new trees, TfL have also installed paved and lit subways at both Hornshay Street and Rollins Street to improve access.

As part of its programme of works to improve walking and cycling routes in the north of the borough, the Council is working with Surrey Canal developer Renewal on options to further enhance the Meadows in the longer term, with the aim of increasing its use by the local community when the development and Surrey Canal Road station go ahead.
