The consultation on the proposed extension to the Northern Line to Nine Elms and Battersea continues, as TfL prepare their submission to the Minister.
The latest round of consultation on the proposed scheme, which would produce two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station, continues, with more planned for the autumn. Tfl say work is underway to prepare a submission to the Secretary of State for permission to build and operate the extension, under a Transport and Works Act Order. THey add that the new line is also subject to a funding and financing package, which would include private developer contributions, and TfL is working with the London Boroughs of Wandsworth and Lambeth to explore how best to provide this.
Michèle Dix, Managing Director of Planning for LU, said: “The proposed Northern line extension would bring huge benefits for local communities along the route. Along with other big redevelopment projects for this new London district, this transport link would help support 16,000 homes and 25,000 jobs.” Subject to funding being in place and permission from the Secretary of State for Transport to build and operate the extension, the new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea could be open by 2019.
