Transport Campaign

Campaign to reopen

Camberwell Station – Act Now!

So What can you do? 

At the moment a group of people, including local politicians (headed by the Chair of Camberwell Community Council Kieron Williams), the SE5 Forum and Community Southwark, are working on the best way to take the campaign forward. But we need as many Southwark residents to get behind it as possible.


If you would like to become involved in the campaign then sign-up to the Southwark CAN website and make sure you tick the ‘Camberwell Station’ box in the ‘Interests’ column. You will receive updates and information about how the campaign, as well as ways in which you can get involved. Alternatively you can email:

Online Petition

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.

Sign the online petition here – don’t forget to share it as well!


In 2014 TFL launched a consultation on proposals to extend the Bakerloo Line beyond elephant and Castle. They offered two options: to extend the route through Camberwell or up to Lewisham (via the Old Kent Road). After receiving a whopping 15,346 responses (96% of which supported the Bakerloo line being extended) the decision was made to focus on the OKR route – not surprising after it was designated as an opportunity area.

The decision came as a blow to local campaign group Peckham and Camberwell Transport (PACT) who had undertaken hours and hours of hard graft drumming up support for the Camberwell option (64% of respondents to the consultation supported it as opposed to 48% for the OKR route) and highlighting the needs of the local community. 

But all is not lost! Out of the ashes a new idea was born – a significant alternative to the underground extension that would simultaneously relieve pressure on Camberwell’s overwhelmed transport network and improve access to two of the busiest hospitals in the London. Another option was put forward in the consultation that proposed the reopening of the Thameslink station situated, unsurprisingly, on station road!
