We are very pleased to see the opening of the London Underground Northern Line extension today, the first major addition to the Tube network this century. This brings much needed connectivity across the capital, carrying passengers to new stops at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station. Battersea is now only a 15-minute direct ride from the City and West End.
Volterra were responsible for providing the economic and business case for the extension. The development will support the c. 25,000 new jobs and 20,000 new homes that are expected to be generated in the Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Battersea (VNEB) regeneration area. Volterra have supported some notable projects in this area during their respective planning phases, including the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, the delivery of a new hotel complex in Nine Elms near the US Embassy, a student housing development, and various residential developments across different parts of Nine Elms. The extension will therefore play a big part in the post-COVID recovery for the capital, and drive economic growth in the area for many years to come.
Congratulations to all involved!
