Wandsworth Council is consulting local people on Transport for London’s detailed plans for the eastern entrance of the proposed new Battersea Power Station tube station.
Work started in April to drill the tube line linking Battersea to the existing Northern Line at Kennington. Two new tube stations are being built – Nine Elms station in Pascal Street and Battersea Power Station on Battersea Park Road next to the Power Station development.These will serve new developments such as the US Embassy, the Power Station and the redevelopment of New Covent Garden Market, as well as existing communities.
The new tube line is expected to be running by 2020.The current application from Transport for London relates to the eastern entrance on Battersea Park Road of the new Battersea Power Station tube station. Outline planning permission has already been granted, but the latest proposals are asking for approval for a more detailed plan.People living near the new Battersea Power Station tube station have been sent consultation letters inviting them to comment on the planning application. Members of the public have until Monday (September 25) to comment.
To see the proposals and to comment online go to the planning section
