£1bn Northern Line Extension Under Threat As TfL Fails To Reach A Deal With Battersea Developers

The title of this post is the same as that of this article in City AM.

It talks how because of design changes to the developments over Battersea Power Station station, the cost of the extension has risen by £240 million.

Transport for London (TfL) and the developers are now arguing who pays the extra costs.

TfL have said, that if need be, the terminus of the extension will be mothballed until agreement is reached.

In Did Heathrow Back Down?, I reported on how Heathrow Airport lost a fight with TfL over Crossrail’s access to the Airport.

TfL is certainly no push-over in these type of negotiations.

I suppose, it all depends on how much, the developers want the station to open!

I have to ask, how many of the development’s owners and residents will want to use the Northern Line?
