Often, if you want to venture deep into south of the river, you have to take eleventy million buses, trains then walk or cycle. It’s not like you get the bends if you descended past the Thames, so why aren’t there more tube stations? There’s been talk of extending the Bakerloo Line since the 1950s, and as the Mayor of London considers his 2020 Vision and plans for major infrastructure investment in the next decade a petition has started urging him to put these plans into motion.

If you want to sign the petition to extend the tube to Camberwell and Peckham you can do so at ipetitions.com.

The above map shows what the tube map would look like if South London had all the tube trains instead of north London having the majority of them as it does at the moment. See the enlarged map at steveprentice.net and many other brilliant tube maps (originally rounded up by Geoff Marshall).
