Wandsworth Council has approved designs for a the new London Underground station at Battersea Power Station.
The new tube station is scheduled to open to passengers in 2020.
Designed by Grimshaw and Partners, it will open onto Battersea Park Road. The council say it is central to opening up the thousands of job opportunities at the power station and elsewhere in the regeneration area.
It will be the first of two station entrances for this stop at Battersea, with a western entrance also to be provided at the southern end of the new High Street that is earmarked within the power station site.
A tunnel under Battersea Park Road will also link the new tube station directly to Stewarts Road.
Planning chairman Cllr Will Sweet said: “This is a momentous occasion in the ongoing story of Nine Elms. Bringing the Northern Line to Battersea has been a fundamental aim of the council for many years and a crucial part of the jigsaw that makes up the area’s regeneration.
“The arrival of tube services to this part of east Battersea will unlock the thousands of new jobs that are a key component of the area’s regeneration.”
