Mayor of London Boris Johnson has rejected the suggestion that Bermondsey Station should be in zone 1 as well as zone 2.

London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon had asked the Mayor to consider, in the light of a re-zoning at Stratford, making Bermondsey Station a zone 1/2 station.

In a written answer, the Mayor said: “While we recognise re-zoning Bermondsey could give a positive boost to the regeneration of the area, it would similarly result in significant costs.” He said that the  Stratford change is expected to cost £7m a year in lost  revenue.
