Question by Darren Johnson

It is very welcome news that phase two of the East London Line extension is to proceed. What will you now do to ensure funding for the construction of Surrey Canal Road station?

Answer by Boris Johnson (1st Term)

I am very pleased that we managed to reach an agreement with the DfT on funding for this much-needed scheme.

The cost of a new station at Surrey Canal Road (SCR) is not provided within the current funding allocation. Construction of the station will be considered as part of the regeneration scheme for the area and will be dependent on a value for money assessment that TfL is carrying out over the next six months.
