"We are proposing to extend the Bakerloo line beyond Elephant & Castle to Lewisham, serving Old Kent Road and New Cross Gate, and would like to hear your views.
"The extension will improve connectivity, increase the capacity and resilience of the transport network and reduce journey times between key destinations. This will help London to grow by supporting new homes and jobs.
"In autumn 2014 we asked for views on an extension of the Bakerloo line. Following assessment of the consulted route options alongside those suggested by consultees, we have concluded that an extension to Lewisham via Old Kent Road and New Cross Gate is the best option for an initial Bakerloo line extension. Progressing with these proposals is a commitment made by the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, and we have therefore allocated funds for its development in the TfL business plan. We have a lot of further work to do to progress these proposals and will consult further as our plans develop. The Mayor has committed to bring the completion date forward from 2030 to 2028/29.
"Our application for planning permission to construct and operate the extension will be through a Transport and Works Act Order. This is subject to rigorous conditions and may result in a public inquiry at which further representations can be made."
