Brockley Station adds 900,000 passengers in four years

Courtesy of Brockley Kate, here the annual passenger numbers for Brockley Station, provided by the Office of the Rail Regulator:

2007–08 1.825 million
2008–09 1.978 million
2009–10 2.000 million
2010–11 2.727 million

Growth accelerated with the opening of the East London Line, which helped passenger numbers grow by 35% in its first year It's this growth which has made many of Brockley's new shops, cafes, bars and restaurants viable - which may offer some consolation, next time you have to crowbar yourself on to the ELL.
