Battersea Power Station (previously proposed as Battersea) is a planned London Underground station to be built in Battersea, London, United Kingdom. It is to be served by the Northern line as part of a two-station extension from Kennington to serve the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station. It will serve as the terminus for the new branch although provision has been made for a possible future extension to Clapham Junction railway station.[2]

The station was given the final approval by the Secretary of State for Transport in November 2014 with it projected to open along with Nine Elms tube station and the whole extension by 2020.[3] Construction began in 2015. Battersea and Nine Elms will be located in Zone 1, making them the London Borough of Wandsworth's first Zone 1 stations.[citation needed] Trains from Battersea will only run via Charing Cross as the branch will be extended off the Kennington loop.[4]

The station will be designed and built by Ferrovial Agroman Laing O’Rourke.[5]

The station will also serve as an out of station interchange with Battersea Park railway station.[6]

In the draft edition of the TfL 'Business Plan 2014', issued as part of the TfL Board papers for their meeting on 10 December, 2014, the map TfL's Rail Transport Network at 2021 labelled the terminus as "Battersea Power Station", instead of just "Battersea" as had appeared on previous publications.[7]

In December 2015, TfL confirmed that the name of the station will be "Battersea Power Station".[8]

The station, along with the Nine Elms redevelopment program is set to support 25,000 new jobs, while offering 1,000 more jobs during construction. As part of that they will additionally be opportunities for apprenticeships and graduate roles.[9]
