Next phase of line extension started

The Northern Line Extension (NLE) scheme took a step closer to completion just before Christmas. Piling works that form the foundations of the new Nine Elms station were completed, the equipment removed.

The scheme is extending the Northern line to Battersea, and regeneration in the area will support 25,000 new jobs and more than 20,000 new homes.

Two new stations are being built at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station and will complete in 2020.
