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.
