London Assembly calls for further East London Line expansion

Following the recent announcement by Mayor Boris and the Department for Transport that phase 2 of the East London Line would get the go-ahead, the London Assembly has asked for a Phase 2+.

Phase 2 will complete a new orbital rail route for London, but according to Construction News, the London Assembly wants a new spur to Brixton and a station at Surrey Canal Road, to ensure maximum benefit from the line.

When does the ELL reach Brox, again?

And when does the disused football pitch outside Brox station finally get reclaimed and transformed by the mung beaners?

Sophie said...

Describing it as a 'spur to Brixton' is a little over-egging it.

The line already passes over the existing mainline station at Brixton, and is next door to the underground station.

So what they really mean is a station.

And heaven forbid that south Londoners should demand not only a new railway but stations to go with it.

@Hugh

Due to arrive by June 2010.

Not sure about the disused football pitch - but sure would like to see the current closed car park turned into some far more interesting.

Does anyone know why are we still unable to use our Oyster Pre pay at Brockley station?
Didn't Ken Livingstone sort that out or even Boris had some meeting with the heads of the train companies a while back on this. Does anyone reading know the upshot of it all?

Headhunter said...

They'll have to allow pre pay Oyster use at some point before they open the Overground line or it won't be properly integrated into the rest of the Tube as it's claimed it will. I assume it's just a waiting game...

Does Anyone know why the Footbridge at the station needs to be closed for 10 weeks. It is quite a detour all the way around the road to get to and from the station?

Brockley Nick said...

I think the foot bridge is probably being closed due to the bridge house demolition work.

Apparently and this is unverified (I'm googling to locate some back up) the people holding up the process of Oyster on the trains is Southern. Someone told me Ken Livingstone is reported as saying that the heads of the train companies are avoiding meeting with the mayor to thrash things out re Oyster.

If anyone else knows about this do chip in.

If this is true then I think some direct action (letters) is required to get Southern to do the decent thing.

Southern, in common with most of the other train operators, are holding up the installation of Oyster pre-pay - and have done for several years.

In their collectively dumb minds the TOCs fear that Oyster will lead to a loss in revenue as customers won't buy a ticket.

What's clearly escaped the collective brain cell among their management teams, is that sporadic ticket office open hours, long queues and broken ticket machines (which is what we get now) are even more likely to result in people not buying a ticket.

Southern should be stripped of its franchise if it hasn't got prepay working by the end of the year.

Headhunter said...

Exactly. I barely ever bother buying a ticket, especially on the way home after a few drinks at the pub....

Oh for F... said...

How does oyster mean someone might not buy a ticket? If the gate's there you have to buy something whether it's oyster or national rail. What a bizaar claim - reminds me of the time Brockley Central regulars compared the installation of the new gates to something out of 1984.

Re Oyster - the reason why it hasnt happened??

Blame TfL - not the train operators.

In order to bring Oyster Pay as you Go in some fares will have to drop substanially as the system is zonal across London (like the underground)and not a point to point system (station to station) as you get on National Rail - and the fares are very different across London and so need to be balanced out to make the system work.

The train companies are commercial companies who live or die by the revenue they receive. TfL has simply refused to compensate them adequately for these losses. And until they do the operators just wont sign.

I am sure they want to as it makes it easier for them (less cash to handle, easier system, need for fewer ticket office staff etc) but if you were them would you sign and see you takings fall substantially (by millions per year in some cases!)??

Of course you wouldnt!!

Anon - where have you been? We now have a zonal system in London on National Rail. It began this January in preparation for the introduction of Oyster pre-pay in October this year. Already discussed extensively here on Brockley Central, as well as on uk.transport.london and in the local press.
