At Battersea Power Station station, the civils team have been drawing their activities to a close as the site transitions into the ‘fit out’ stage of works with multiple specialist sub-contractors now on board.

With over 90% of the block work to create the internal walls now complete and a final coat of paint applied, the newly created ‘back of house’ rooms will be fitted with the mechanical and electrical equipment required to power the station.

March also saw the completion of the installation of the precast coffered panels which form the ticket hall’s architectural ceiling.

At Nine Elms station, they recently completed the final structural concrete pour, and cladding works are well under way at platform level to add the architectural finish to the walls and ceilings.

Within Kennington Station, fit out works continue inside the hoarding followed by commissioning during engineering hours.

The rail team also reached a milestone in April when the final section of track, the cross over segment, was fixed in situ which completes the track installation for the entire project and connects the Northern Line Extension from start to finish.

The track in the extension between Battersea and Nine Elms has also been installed on special low vibration supports.

Works are also continuing below ground at the two ventilation shafts at Kennington Green and Kennington Park.

The extension is due to be opened in Autumn 2021.

    Waste of money. Battersea Park & Queenstown Road rail stations are moments from the development. Both hardly used. The luxury accommodation on site is sold off plan to foreign ‘investors’ who will never live there. As is the case for the other construction sites in the direction of Vauxhall. Battersea Park Station station (hello?!) & Nine Elms will become ghost stops like Down St. or Brompton Rd on the Piccadilly line in the 1930’s. Within a decade.

      Couldn’t disagree more. All this focus on a few luxury flats is a bit tired. In actual fact a new school a huge amount of build to rent are coming to this area. The buses are full to capacity.

    Well I for one am certainly planning to be using the line, as are many many people I know who live in Battersea.
    I’m not interested in the nearbymainline train stations as I don’t want to have to wait to travel just one stop to a major transport hub – eg Victoria, Waterloo, and all the changing and crowds that involves.
    Tube straight through North on the Northern line to West End or Kings Cross? Brilliant.
    Don’t underestimate the number of Londoners who want to live around there, but didnt’ want to be away from the tube. You have to put the infrastructure in to get more people to adopt the area properly
