Use Southern Rail a few times and you'll long for London Transport.

Plans to improve and expand Gatwick Airport:

To view the link you have to Register or Login

"Planned upgrades will include doubling the size of the station concourse, adding 5 new lifts and 8 escalators to improve passenger flow, and widening platforms to reduce overcrowding. They plan to widen platforms 5,6 & 7, and construct a new station entrance spanning platforms 4-7. New lifts and escalators will be added to platforms 5-7."

...

"The 150 million budget is however 30 million higher than originally estimated back in 2014.

The final master plan for the upgrades will be published later in 2019.

The improvement works are due to start in Spring 2020 and will take around two years to complete."

TfL has announced it's preferred route for a London Tram Extension to Sutton. The route would link Colliers Wood on the Northern Line to Sutton via Belgrave Walk to interchange with services to Wimbledon or services into Croydon.

This is preferred over a similar route that would have gone slightly west instead of east at Morden Hall Park to serve Wimbledon South via Morden Road.

A third option would have seen a link to the west of Morden and gone via Wimbledon on the District Line and West Sutton station.

Great, more obstruction on the Sutton bypass.

I don't really see the point in it. It is not exactly a difficult transfer to get from the tram to the Northern Line, just, a ten minute walk from memory?

Not that these would ever happen but, a tram extension up the A23 to link the Tram to the Victoria Line would have been amazing
Extend it East from Beckenham Junction to Bromley would also be useful
From Bromley extend north to Lewisham to link to the DLR via Sunridge Park, Grove Park and Hither Green

Option 3 is the exact route of the existing BR route from Wimbledon to Sutton except for the last bit at Sutton which then takes a street route.Neither Southern or Thameslink or their users would be that impressed unless they had dual running rights. Thameslink uses it as one leg of their Sutton circular route and losing this may man a drop in direct services through and beyond the city. I'm never that keen on tram for train replacements unless absolutely necessary. Sadly tram routes often take the path of least resistance (cost) rather than that of requirement?

How does getting from the tram to the Northern Line get you to Sutton? The point of it is to link Sutton into the tram network.

I was getting confused, what I meant is that you currently link from the Northern Line to the Tram via Wimbledon or by South Wimbledon and walk to Morden Road.

I just think that there are more beneficial extensions and/or expansions that could be put into place than this.

The ones you suggest aren't more beneficial if you live in Sutton, though.

Well no obviously, but, what I mean is that the South East area beyond Beckenham Junction and a link to the DLR, which can then link to Elizabeth Line is in desperate need of improvement.

A lot of money is being spent going East to West with the Elizabeth Line, and going South-West to North-East with the proposed Crossrail 2, but, nothing has been said about improving connectivity to other lines.

Population of Brixton to Ampere Way via A23:

Norbury - 16,400
Streatham - 58,000
Tulse Hill - 15,700
Brixton - 78,500
Total - 168,600

Population of Bromley (to link to Beckenham Junction):

Bromley to Lewisham:

Bromley: 331,000
Sundridge Park: 15,100
Grove Park: 14,700
Hither Green: 32,500
Lewisham: 303,500
Total: 696,800

The population figures you are quoting for Bromley and Lewisham are for the entire population of both boroughs. To make a like for like comparison the Ampere Way to Brixton group would include the whole population of the boroughs of Croydon, Lambeth and Wandsworth.

Always said it was the most stupid of decisions to bot run the line to Wimbledon through Morden town centre stopping outside the tube station. Thought that's the point of an integrated system. Then this new line could have gone north south at the same point adding to the alternatives.
