TfL Confirms Northern Line Extension Work Is ‘On Track’

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Wandsworth Guardian.

It is good to hear, that there has been no further delays.

Part of the article talks about the use of the Kennington Loop, which is shown in this visualisation from at least a century ago.

But what I found useful was speculation about the services after the extension opens.

However, it is thought that when the new stations open, 16 trains per hour will carry on to Nine Elms and Battersea, leaving just eight trains per hour terminating at Kennington and travelling around the loop.

On the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised to see all trains going to Battersea Power Station station, as it might be operationally easier and the higher frequency may attract more passengers.
