Bakerloo Line Extension

Campaign for the Bricklayers Arms Tube station - Click here to sign our petition to demand TFL not make a ventilation shaft but build the first new Bakerloo line extension station at the Bricklayers Arms

The Liberal Democrats are leading the fight to persuade TFL into building a new tube station at the Bricklayers Arms.  Following petitions and strong responses to the consultation - a demonstration organised by local TRAs, Businesses and the Liberal Democrats has gained cross party support. As it stands TFL have agreed to review their original proposals to only build a ventilation shaft disrupting local businesses and residents for a number of years and no station at the end of the works.
