New Overground station

Lewisham Council has been a long-time supporter of plans for a new station in the far north west of the borough.

At one time, the station was included within the plans for the second phase of the London Overground extension (Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction). The Department for Transport had initially allocated £7 million for the project, but the money was later withdrawn. However, private developer Renewal has since made arrangements to fund the new station due to its proximity to the New Bermondsey development.

Transport for London (TfL) has already built a station box at Surrey Canal Road as part of its London Overground works, so the station can be built with the minimum of disruption. TfL is also building a number of subways on the Council’s behalf, which will provide access under the railway at Rollins Street, Stockholm Road and on the north side of Surrey Canal Road. These will support the regeneration of the area by providing access between the future proposed development sites either side of the railway.
