The very first train has travelled on the extension of the Northern Line to Nine Elms and Battersea.
Two new junctions which will connect the extension to the existing Northern Line have now been completed, and the first train to travel over them was photographed on New Year’s Day.
When the extension opens in 2020, trains on the new track will join the Charing Cross branch of the Northern line via the new junction on the Kennington Loop.
Last month designs for a new underground station at Battersea Power Station were approved by Wandsworth Council. There will also be a new station in Nine Elms in Pascal Street.
