Growth in population and passenger number usage of the three Streatham mainline stations

Growth in Streatham rail station passenger numbers

Streatham’s three railway stations have experienced unprecedented growth in footfall levels over the 5-year period 2009-10 and 2014-15 – by as much as 58% in the case of Streatham station. As the graphs further on in this presentation demonstrate, this significant upward trajectory started to take place immediately after Streatham was last assessed, and discounted, by CR2 as a potential CR2 station.

There has been a surge in footfall levels at Streatham station in particular (58.4% growth in passenger numbers over the course of the 6-year period since that station was last assessed by CR2 in 2009-10).

  • Streatham rail stations are among the most crowded on the network

  • Huge surge in passenger numbers over the six-year period between 2009-2010 and 2014-2015, as follows:

  • Streatham Station up 58.4% (43% by 2013-14)

  • Streatham Common up 34.5% (28.5% by 2013-14)

  • Streatham Hill up 40.9% (36.5% by 2013-14)

  • This increase in footfall levels is borne out by ONS statistics, indicating a 16% increase in population since 2009, and 28% since 2004, with the wards where Streatham and Streatham Common stations are situated experiencing 39% and 44% population growth over this period.
