TfL plans for DLR, Overground and Bakerloo extensions in Lewisham

BCer Monkeyboy has sent us a copy of the latest TfL Business Plan. In the section called "Unlocking the Future Growth of London", the document highlights Lewisham as a borough where future capacity is required and alludes to the possible extensions of Overground, Bakerloo and DLR services in the borough:

We are continuing to assess ways to improve access to Lewisham and Bromley. These will be considered through a coordinated approach, which will include options such as a possible extension of the Bakerloo line, the DLR or the Overground. A key focus is how any proposal will be funded.

The Mayor has been teasing us with the prospect of a Bakerloo extension for a long time now, though at best, it appears to be a rhetorical admission that such a scheme makes a lot of sense, rather than a serious plan. However, the steady drip of news and commentary about these three projects is encouraging. Each of them has the potential to unlock huge regeneration benefits.
