Nine Elms tube station goes out to consultation
Major developments in the wider Battersea Nine Elms area, including New Covent Garden Market and the American Embassy.
Battersea Power Station developer Treasury Holdings is consulting on proposals to build a new tube station close to the Rafael Vinoly-designed scheme.
The firm has unveiled four potential routes for an extension to the Northern Line.
“The scheme is not dependent on the tube line, they are separate entities,” said a spokeswoman. “The only link is that they have mapped out an area where the station would be. It has been factored in.”
A train station would benefit a series of major developments in the wider Nine Elms area, including New Covent Garden Market and the American Embassy.
Treasury is considering a series of funding strategies, including a “Northern Line Extension Levy” similar to the Crossrail Levy.
