Battersea boost for Northern Line extension

Long-held plans for an extension of the Northern Line have been boosted by progress on the Battersea Power Station redevelopment.

The government has revealed that work on the £8 billion mixed-use Battersea scheme is expected to begin next summer, with £400 million investment due this summer. 

Plans include lenghtening the iconic London Tube line, with a transport hub at the redeveloped power station site.

Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia said: “The Battersea Power Station scheme makes an essential contribution to the Northern Line Extension funding pot.

“This Tube link is the key to creating 25,000 jobs and unlocking billions in growth across the wider Nine Elms area, which is much bigger than just the power station site alone.

“Today’s announcement puts this vital infrastructure project on an even stronger footing and we’re delighted the new owners expect to get underway so soon.”
