Campaign to reopen Camberwell Station – Act Now!
It’s time for the Department of Transport to support TfL and Network Rail, in re-opening Camberwell Railway Station, on behalf of Camberwell residents, and all Londoners.
You can download petition here. Please note bellow.
The key thing to remember when collecting signatures is that we can only use originals, no photocopies are permissible, and only sheets with ‘the petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to re-open Camberwell Station, London’ at the top of the page, to prove that the signatories knew what they were signing. Full home addresses must be collected with each name.
Once you have collected signatures you can drop off the petition at SE5 Forum’s market stall (every Saturday at Camberwell Green between 10am-2pm) or drop it into Cambridge House, 1 Addington Square, SE5 0HF (FAO Robert Jamieson).
Camberwell SE5 is an area of London that is badly served for public transport. When TfL consulted in 2014 about extending the Bakerloo line through Camberwell, a big majority of responses favoured this option, but the tube route went elsewhere.
• The lack of access is holding back our local economy and businesses.
• Compared to other major hospitals in London, getting to Kings College Hospital and the Maudsley, is challenging for staff, patients and families
• One of our principal routes to and from Central London is the Walworth Rd, which is so congested with traffic that people who can walk find it faster than taking the bus.
Priority Action for Camberwell (PACT) is a grass roots community organisation campaigning for better transport. Join us in calling on the Secretary of State for Transport, to provide public and practical support for the Camberwell Station project, working with the London Borough of Southwark and other stakeholders.
