Work is proceeding well to build the short stretch of new line to connect the ELL (East London Line) from Surrey Quays to the line that will run to Clapham Junction via Queens Rd Peckham, Peckham Rye, Denmark Hill, Clapham High St, Wandsworth Rd.

Southwark News 20 August 2009 by Val Shawcross

TfL have now decided that the new Surrey Canal Road station, on the new East London Line Extension pase 2, is not cost effective and are shelving the plans.

East London Line Extension phase 2 (ELLX2) update

This service would bring TfL-run overground trains from Canada Water (interchange with Jubilee Line) to Clapham Junction via Queens Rd, Peckham Rye, Denmark Hill. There has been continuous wrangling between Mayor Boris Johnson and the Department of Transport on the last £30m of the £100m funding. These wrangles continue now with the Dept of Transport saying they will not pay their share unless TfL finds more money to build a new station at Surrey Canal Road in South Bermondsey. Decisions have to be made very soon if the extension can be built in time for 2012 the planned date.

MP's Fight for Surrey Canal Rd East London Line Station (ELLX2)
