On Friday 26th June I joined Tessa Jowell MP, Val Shawcross AM and other local campaigners outside Denmark Hill Rail Station to campaign against the proposed cut to the South London Line.
The South London Line currently runs every half hour between Victoria and London Bridge via Battersea Park, Wandsworth Road, Clapham High Street, Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye, Queens Rd Peckham and South Bermondsey.
It has recently been announced that Transport for London plan to withdraw the service completely.
There is a lot of concern about this proposal and I have been contacted by many of my constituents who, like me, are alarmed by the possibility of this service cut.
Most Londoners will soon benefit from the investment in transport projects such as Thameslink, the underground upgrades and Crossrail. We must ensure that residents in Camberwell and Peckham also benefit from this investment.
If you would like to show your support for the ‘Save the South London Line’ campaign you can sign the petition and get more information at:
