Figures out today show large growth at some Southeastern stations in south east London.
For the first full year of TfL management of Abbey Wood station show a 20.6 per cent increase in counted passengers.
Overall numbers increased from 3.1 million to 3.7 million.
This occurred despite the local population reducing as nearby Thamesmead estate buildings saw residents leave in advance of rebuilding. Residents have moved out of a large number of homes along Harrow Manorway towards Southmere Lake.
Belvedere saw a healthy 11.6 per cent increase and Plumstead a stonking 41.5% increase.
I’ll cover other stations in a follow up post. The Woolwich and Greenwich line has seen extremely large growth at most stations. Some stations like Maze Hill are more than 50 per cent up.
Woolwich Arsenal was up 13.6 per cent and Woolwich Dockyard 45.3%.
