Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

I am not convinced. If they are proposing an actual underground route the cost will be colossal. It ain't gonna happen. Then again... there are a couple of alternative proposals that would cost a fraction of the amount but deliver a less than useful extension. Think of committees and horses... came...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

i.e. blocking access to Sainsbury, TK Max and the various small businesses that lie behind... It ain't gonna happen... but thanks for reproducing the TFL lies. It's not in the car park - it's under it John and not directly in the way. There will just be shafts to the surface. Remember Sainsbury's a...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Back to pipe-dreams. Mine is NCG was accidentally destoyed and they rebuilt it without the centre platform but used the free'd up space to make a double platform northbound (like the current southbound) to seperate Overground and Southern traffic. The current Southern mainline stoppers from Oxted wo...

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

Just to add my two-pennyworth - well I remember when chips were sixpennyworth and cod was for special occasions only - how I appreciate Supreme's response here. When I was Admin I often got complaints from traders about complaints here. They were hurt, their businesses are their pride and joy, plus ...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

The Gospel Oak to Barking route is the second current PR nightmare for TfL. Wow - I found out what you were referring to here: http://www.barking-gospeloak.org.uk/documents/20190208_press_release.pdf And an earlier summary/prediction: https://www.citymetric.com/transport/london-s-gospel-oak-barking...

Re: Why no longer https?

Yes but it shouldn't have happened. It's ironic that I complained about the Lewisham Planning login page last November which was not encrypted. Except there was no secure way to login and, I believe, the same password if captured could be used to access and change some sensitive data in other depart...

Done. I've also added the Crystal Palace Fun Runners evenings on a Monday and Wednesday evening as good competition for those who want to extend their runs: https://crystalpalacefunrunners.co.uk/

A change made about a week ago means if you ask for insecure content you get it. This will be fixed shortly.

Firefox on Android is showing secure/green padlock. Will investigate further when I get home.

Mosy what os/browser version are you using and what exact page replicates the issue?

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Coincidentally this week's Newsshopper contains an advert from Sainsbury's calling a community consultation on their New Cross Gate redevelopment which, it says, "will not disrupt TfL's aspirations to extend the Bakerloo Line to New Cross Gate" It refers you to the project website at http://nxgproje...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

On the other hand John if you use Journey Planner now to go from the Brighton mainline to the Lewisham line it will favour taking the short walk between New Cross Gate and New Cross rather than interchanging at Surrey Quays. So a few minutes between the Overground and the Underground at New Cross Ga...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Right now, there are a few cheap transport improvements I'd like to see for the area that would just make life easier - better Sunday timetables for the Hayes & Penge East lines, Thameslink serving Sydenham (preferably 24hr), and a direct bus from Sydenham High Street to Bromley. AFAIR the current ...

Re: Broadband in Kirkdale

If what TalkTalk is saying is correct (don't bet the farm on it) then it points to a cabinet issue if your landline is still working OK. Is your connection fibre or straight ADSL? If its a fibre issue the link between the streetbox and exchange then people also on fibre will have the same issue (slo...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Also thanks to Likelife. Most informative forum post this year would get my vote. I'm also guessing that installing the extra power rail would cause a year or more's disruption to the Hayes service which, with few alternatives, make it a no-no. Also unless phase 2 is part of phase 1 the new Bakerloo...

Re: Broadband in Kirkdale

Do you mean wifi or internet connection? Wifi is how any of your wireless devices (phone, tablet etc) connects to your TalkTalk router. It has nothing to do with BT. Can your wireless devices 'see' the router? Do you have a laptop or desktop connected to the router directly by cable? BT provide the ...
