New Cross station’s booming passenger numbers
New Cross station saw a big jump in passengers to 3.74 million in recently released figures – a 13% rise on the year before.
The station serves both London Overground and Southeastern.
Growth is possibly focused on Southeastern services given sister station New Cross Gate, which serves Southern and London Overground, saw a very small 0.4% fall.
Just a few years ago in 2013/14 the station saw 2.6 million annual users. The station will likely see further growth given a number of large developments nearby.
One such is a tower scheme just to the north named Deptford Foundry with 316 homes:
200 other flats were submitted for planning on Trundleys Road.
