Tube line to cross South London
SOUTH London will get its first east-west Tube line following an announcement yesterday by the Government and London Mayor Boris Johnson.
Work on Phase 2 will begin in three months and is due to finish in 2012.
It will see a line running from Clapham Junction, to Docklands and the City, via Wandsworth Road, Clapham High Street, Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye, Queens Road Peckham and Surrey Quays.
A cash shortfall means the planned station, Surrey Canal Road, between Queens Road Peckham and Surrey Quays, has yet to be decided
