London Boroughs Push to Prioritise Bakerloo and Elizabeth Line Extensions

Under the umbrella group London Councils, the London boroughs have collaborated to present a list of key infrastructure projects that should be prioritised, including the Bakerloo line extension, the Elizabeth line extension and the HS2 Euston terminus.

This is the first time that all 33 of the capital’s local authorities have agreed on a London-wide infrastructure framework to help secure “a more prosperous, inclusive and sustainable” future for the capital.

In total, 67 projects are included in the infrastructure framework based on the boroughs’ strategic priorities. These include:

  • Extending HS2 to Euston
  • Completing Connected London, which is delivering 2,000km of full-fibre connectivity across the London Underground
  • Delivering the Bakerloo line extension to south-east London
  • Continuing the Elizabeth line to Kent by extending the new line beyond Abbey Wood
  • Progressing Crossrail 2 to improve capacity across London and South East of England
Cllr Elizabeth Campbell, London Councils’ Executive Member for London's Future: Business, Economy and Culture, said:

“Boroughs are collaborating like never before to promote infrastructure investment in the capital and help us achieve our shared vision of a more prosperous, inclusive and sustainable London.

“By setting out boroughs’ agreed priorities and the exciting range of development opportunities across the capital, the London infrastructure framework will drive investment towards where it will make the most difference.”

The framework was developed through close collaboration with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London (TfL).
