Hackney's East London Line Group and the LTUC want to see interchange platforms provided on the Nunhead-Lewisham line at Brockley.See a map of Brockley in a new window
The Nunhead - Lewisham line, served by South Eastern, passes just to the north of Brockley station, served by South Central. There have been no platforms on thh Nunhead - Lewisham line here since 1917.
Providing platforms here would enable interchange between east-west and north-south services, vastly improving journeys between central south London and south east London, e.g. Croydon to Lewisham or Woolwich.
The Brockley Cross Action Group estimates possible time savings for Lewisham to Croydon of 8-13 minutes over the existing route via London Bridge, and journeys from Brockley to Victoria would take half the time.
However, the following response was received in December 2004 to a written question by Darren Johnson (Assembly Member for this area):
No current news for this project.
