Underground extension to Battersea opens Monday 20th Sept.
Save

The extension of the Northern Line from Kennington to Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station will open on Monday 20th September, with the first train departing Battersea Power Station at 05.28.

Initially the service will be five trains an hour (6 at peak times), all operating via the Charing Cross branch. This will be doubled in May next year, following the 17-week closure of the Bank branch to complete the major reconstruction of Bank Station.

Some signage had gone up yesterday in other Northern Line stations calling it Power Station Battersea.

Added to that, some of the stickers used to update station maps had the two stations in the wrong order!

Oh dear! I’m down in London tomorrow for a few days so might have to go pay it a visit as it’s a few years since I’ve been around the Battersea area.

There was an article on tonight’s PM about other stations that also had stations in their name. I’m just typing this whilst listening to Just a Minute and trying to work out if Battersea Power Station Station would be allowed……

I am a big Pink Floyd and the Orb fan and they have used Battersea Power stage in lots of their merchadise and albums covers, are there any guided tours or viewing points etc?
