New images have been released of what Battersea’s new Tube station will look like.
Designs show the eastern entrance on Battersea Park Road with floor-to-ceiling glass panels and a gold geometric roof, as well as the planned interior of the new station.
The station, which will be the borough of Wandsworth’s first to open for 95 years, will also be served by a western entrance at the southern end of the new High Street.
A giant boring machine named Amy broke through at Kennington, meaning a pair of two-mile long tunnels have been created in south London.
It is the first major expansion of the Tube since the Jubilee line in the late 1990s.
Two new stations will be opened in 2020 – one at the heart of the Battersea Power Station redevelopment and another at Nine Elms, serving developments such as the US Embassy and the revamped New Covent Garden Market, as well as existing communities.
Neill McClements, Partner at Grimshaw, said: “We are delighted to reach another significant milestone on this transformational project.
“The eastern station entrance at Battersea will provide a distinctive gateway to the heart of the surrounding development, orientating passengers with views of Gilbert Scott’s Power Station and providing a convenient interchange with onward transport modes.
“It is a truly collaborative client, design and development team and we look forward to seeing the project develop as part of a major regeneration within the borough of Wandsworth.”
