A New Station For Battersea

In the June 2016 Edition of Modern Railways in an article entitled Turning South London Orange.

One of the proposals is to create a new station at Battersea.

The station is proposed to have platforms on the Southeastern lines into Victoria, close to the Dogs’ Home, that will adjoin the new Battersea Power Station station on the Northern Line extension.

This Google Map shows the Battersea area |South of the Thames.

Note the position of Battersea Power station to the East of the railway lines crossing the Thames into Victoria station.

The three stations shown are from North to South.

Battersea station will sit somewhere to the South West of the Power Station.

This Google Map shows the area in more detail.

Given that there is a redesign at Battersea, that I wrote about in Is A Big Row Developing Over The Northern Line Extension?, I have this feeling that a new Battersea station might be part of the solution. If Transport for London are having to foot the bill for a stronger station box, then connecting it to a new station on the Southeastern lines might generate traffic, that would create some income.

If the Improved South London Line proposed by Centre for London is built, then the new Battersea station will be conveniently between Victoria and Wandsworth Road stations.

  • It would link the Northern Line to the Southeastern  lines.
  • It would improve journeys between South and South East London to Central London.

According to several theories, you can’t have too many stations.
