TfL have now published their Consultation Report and Response to Issues Raised following the autumn 2019 consultation on updated proposals for extending the Bakerloo line beyond Elephant & Castle to Lewisham, serving Old Kent Road and New Cross Gate. The consultation also sought to understand the level of support for a further extension beyond Lewisham to Hayes and Beckenham Junction.
8,749 responses were received. The majority of respondents made positive or supportive comments about our overall proposals (89 per cent). There was also support (82 per cent) for a possible further extension to Hayes and Beckenham Junction.

Despite the huge impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on the TfL network and finances, it remains committed to delivering the Bakerloo line extension. This however remains dependent on a viable funding package being put together, with a Government commitment to support funding for the scheme.
The immediate priority is safeguarding the route of the Bakerloo line extension from Lambeth North to Lewisham in order to protect the route for delivery, a process led by the Department for Transport. TfL are in constructive discussions with the Department for Transport to work towards this important milestone.
