More on Battersea Power Station and Northern line Extension

Having now blogged the results from the Princes Ward 2009 election, Lurking about SE11 will return to greater commentary on news affecting the local area.

I think various other local blogs have covered this story, but it has popped up again in my local news feeds. There is currently a second public exhibition on the Battersea Power Station redevelopment. Since the first exhibition, the masterplan has been changed and various buildings have been (predictably) scaled down so the developers are reconsulting on the plans.

It's somewhat periperhal to SE11, but the reason it's interesting for us is because it would be very exciting to have the northern line connected via one or two stations to Battersea, which would open up the area for local residents here. As I said in my previous post, it's somewhat short sighted, but I favour nearly all public transport extensions. However, I notice that the new letter only states "plans for extending the Northern Line into Nine Elms" which isn't terribly clear. I know that there was one stop proposed (mentioned in my last post on the matter here), but I do vaguely recall hearing mention of a stop at Clapham Junction! Perhaps I made that up!

If you'd like to go along, there's more information on Treasury Holdings' Battersea Power Station website. You've not got long (tomorrow being your best opportunity now).

It's at Gate 2 of the Power Station site on Kirtling Street:

4th June: 12:00 - 20:00
5th June: 10:00 - 18:00
6th June: 10:00 - 17:00

Also saw tonight the hotel complex at Oval Cricket Ground has finally been approved.

More info and pictures of the proposed plans (taken at the exhibition) at

The plans show Nine Elms station as being under the Sainsbury's car park, and the tunnels running through a swathe of Vauxhall and Kennington (As well as locations of what appear to be air shafts / boring shafts)
