Discussion in 'Brixton' started by teuchter, Sep 15, 2013.
Yes - Brixton East seems to make going to Clapham Junction / Peckham / East End much easier
If it meant a load of people started getting off Wimbledon trains at LJ in the mornings, to interchange with the Overground, that might be good. As long as it's not balanced by an even larger number getting off the overground and wanting to get on at LJ.
The Sutton tracks through old Camberwell station are straight as an arrow, and the platforms only need to be as long as an 8-car train (the maximum ever likely to run on the sutton loop) - 160m
Denmark Hill trains would bypass.
Seems reasonable to me.
What you call the Sutton lines are actually used by many Sevenoaks trains as well (they swap lines just N of LJ station). So if you are planning to put your platforms on that pair then they can stop, and LJ trains can be sent on the fast bypass route
I'm all for re-opening Brixton East - it was the centre piece of my Coldharbour Ward election campaign in 2014!
I just thought that adding back the Denmark Hill bound platforms at LJ might also be potentially newly viable in this time of higher public transport usage.
Apparently not. Exactly who made these immutable rules about curvature of platforms? Are they enshrined in European law I ask? - for obvious reasons!
All we'd have to do is terminate all loop trains in the bay at Blackfriars and send the Sevenoaks trains through the tunnel. Nice and segregated and reliable
Better clear that with LJAG and the burgers of Streatham.
they'll soon see how wrong they were

We're gonna be on telly! (Or at least the barbershop next to hero of Switzerland is). Pretty major production by the looks of it this morning.
Looks like it's not going to be a musical comedy.
Went to about 1 hour of this meeting - first half.
Nice to know the project is still ploughing ahead.
There were a lot of people at the meeting (50 or more I reckon)
The one sticking point seemed to be that some people were very keen to find out what the prices would be to enter space.
The designated facilities management organisation (Meanwhile Space) would not give any idea what rental rates were proposed.
It seemed to me that the project has built in flexibility - in that there are several uses proposed for the spaces, which could presumably be adjusted in the light of demand as it turns out.
Meanwhile the council officer working with the project seems very supportive - and the architect very conscious they have to work to deadline in order to benefit from the GLA grant.
Available now while stocks last at the Loco shop (opposite tescos):
A very small and fearless kitten who sleeps behind the counter and wants to be stroked. Will cheer you up. Highly recommended.

Does anyone have any information re introduction of Controlled Parking Zones around the Vassell area?
