Move Woolwich Arsenal from zone 4 to zone 3/4 boundary

This petition had 1,739 supporters

As the opening of Crossrail is next year and as the regeneration of Woolwich gains momentum, I think it's important to help the area further benefit from all these positive changes. The number of commuters is growing and this trend is only going to continue.

Moving Woolwich Arsenal station from 4 to the zone 3/4 boundary will help make Woolwich even more attractive and slightly less expensive for workers commuting west, without penalising those coming into Woolwich from the east.

Stratford was rezoned to zone 2, that helped with regenerating the area.

Woolwich is the only DLR station in zone 4.

Gallions Reach, just north of the river and further east than Woolwich, is already in zone 3.

These are all the reasons why we think Woolwich Arsenal should  be moved onto the zone 3/4 boundary.

The last response from ex-Mayor Boris Johnson from a similar petition was incorrect relating to just the Southeastern part of the station, whereas there is the DLR, Crossrail aspect also.
