Nine Elms is a London Underground station under construction in Nine Elms, London, as part of the Northern line extension to Battersea.[2] The station is projected to open along with the rest of the extension in 2020,[2] and will serve the rapidly growing Nine Elms area,[3] New Covent Garden Market and the new Embassy of the United States.

The new station is close to the site of the former Nine Elms railway station, once the terminus of the London and South Western Railway.

Services

The future station will be located in Zone 1, and will be served by the Northern line as part of the two station extension from Kennington to serve the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station. It will serve as the intermediate station for the new branch.

Construction

The station was given the final approval by the Secretary of State for Transport in November 2014,[4] [5] and construction began in 2015 - with the design and building of the station by the joint venture of Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke.[6]

The station is being built using the cut and cover station box method, ensuring easy access during construction, as well as allowing future construction of a mixed-use development on top of the station.[7]

This future development will provide hundreds of new homes (with 25% being affordable), office space, retail and a new public square serving the station. This will allow Transport for London to recoup some of the costs of building the station, as well as providing long term revenue for TfL.[8]
