Here, the three individuals who Tf L confirm suggested the Bakerloo should be extended to Gatwick Airport should perhaps step away from their respective computers and take a long, hard look at themselves.
We will also ignore the details of why a Bakerloo line extension to Hextable, Wilmington, Coney Hall, Hammersmith, Birkbeck, City Hall and a host of other equally bizarre locations was rejected and attempt to find what the report is really trying to say.
So, without further ado, the report recommends that the Bakerloo line should be extended from Elephant & Castle to Lewisham via the Old Kent Road and suggests an opening date of 2030.
Surprisingly, the report hardly mentions Crossrail 2 and when it does it is only in a fairly minor context.
As a result, the Old Kent Road route has been selected.
Something else that has been considered is whether to just go to the Old Kent Road and terminate there or, alternatively, to go a little further and terminate at New Cross Gate.
A failure to grasp this will result in a failure to fully understand why the decisions made so far have been made.
For our purposes it is easier to give the main conclusion of the report and then look at how it arrived at it, rather than the reverse.
Only in the light of looking at the housing issue can you clearly see why the route chosen was selected.
As we have covered before, south of Elephant & Castle the first major issue has always been to decide a route to Lewisham.
A recent article on this website on the Oxted lines generated over 600 comments and nearly all were about the lightly used branch to Uckfield and very few about the busier and more important one to East Grinstead. Comments on the Waterloo & City line (and especially extending it) seem to be such a popular subject that they have generated one of our few specific rules on comments – the subject is almost always banned in comment threads for fear of it drowning out the actual subject of discussion. It is the next least busy Tube line (at least if you regard the Sub Surface Railway as one entity) and yet an article on proposals to extend it has currently attracted over 1700 comments.
