Northern Line Extension gets the green light

Northern Line Volterra, led by Bridget Rosewell, advised on the case for Transport for London’s Northern Line Extension (NLE) to Nine Elms and Battersea. The project was given the go-ahead by the Secretary of State for Transport earlier this month. Bridget was responsible for providing the Economic and Business Case. Her analysis showed that the NLE has the potential to deliver economic benefits worth up to £7.9 billion to the UK Economy, including 25,000 new jobs and 16,000 new homes. Overall the project has a Benefit to Cost Ratio of over 8.1 – representing excellent value for money. Bridget was also called up as an expert witness to provide evidence at the NLE public enquiry last year.
