Nothern Line Extension

We the undersigned petition the Council to lobby for a proposed extension of the Northern Line to Battersea.

Should the northern line be extended?

As part of ambitious plans to re-develop Battersea Power Station, one of London’s most iconic buildings, and regenerate the area around it, should Transport for London consider extending the Northern Line to Battersea?

Developers have outlined plans for the 38-acre site, which includes new homes, offices, shops, restaurants and an energy museum.

Extending a key underground line to this area could give it a real boost as it would significantly improve public transport options for people living and working there.

Is this something you would like Lambeth Council to lobby Transport for London on?

Have your say on our e-Petition. You can agree, disagree or say "don't know".
