Users of Honor Oak Park station will have noticed the extensive works on the embankment next to the up platform. This is happening because the extensive site clearance works for Southwark Council on their old plant nursery have been causing land creep down the bank.

Southwark’s works to the site are intended to remove contaminated soil and other debris dumped there over the past few decades. The origin of the materials is subject to investigations involving Southwark Council, Network Rail, the Environment Agency and others.

How about they put ramp access for wheel chairs and buggies like at Brockley? That would greatly help people in the area and should not be too hard to do?

It would, and it shouldn’t be. It’s been suggested before (including by us) but it appears to be a far to obvious and value-for-money improvement for the bureaucrats to contemplate.
