Val Shawcross AM responds to Northern Line extension

Commenting on the approval of the Northern Line extension to Battersea and Nine Elms, London Assembly Labour Group Transport Spokesperson, Val Shawcross said:

“The approval of the Northern Line extension to Battersea is great news and will make a real difference for everyone living along the extended route. It also offers a unique opportunity to turn the long derelict Battersea power station into a new hub, creating new jobs, businesses and homes.”

“Whilst the extension is very welcome there are of course real challenges to a project of this type in such a densely populated area. TfL need to do everything they can to manage the construction and traffic safely and unobtrusively whilst making sure that local communities are the first to benefit from the project.”
