Old Kent Road railway station was a station in South London. It opened on 13 July 1866 on a viaduct and bridge crossing the road at a junction with a line to London Bridge and what became Surrey Quays tube station on the East London Line and Queen's Road Peckham railway station on the Inner South London Line. It was later renamed "Old Kent Road and Hatcham". It was operated by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway. It closed on 1 January 1917.

Future[edit]

East London Line Extension plans.

The reopening of the spur to the East London Line in December 2012 has allowed through services for the first time in roughly a century. A new station, Surrey Canal Road, was proposed to be about 700 metres north of the site of Old Kent Road station but funding has not been agreed.[1][2] A proposed Bakerloo line extension has been proposed to stop at either Old Kent Road or Peckham Rye but only one station will be served.
