Improved access to Battersea Power Station Tube in the works

By Charlotte Lillywhite, Local Democracy Reporter

Battersea Power Station Tube station is set to have a new step-free entrance with more escalators in spring next year.

The station opened alongside the new Nine Elms Underground station when the Northern line was extended to Battersea in September 2021.

Although the station currently only has one entrance in Battersea Park Road, it was designed so that a second entrance could be built in the future and concrete maintenance steps were installed to support the addition of two escalators.

Works to build this new entrance under an office block in Electric Boulevard are now being carried out by Transport for London (TfL) and the Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), who have confirmed they are ‘well under way’ and due to be completed in spring next year.

The companies say the new entrance will provide a ‘more direct link’ to the Battersea Power Station development.

The ongoing development of the 42-acre site is split into eight phases and aims to create a new riverside neighbourhood with homes, shops, bars, restaurants, cafés, offices and more than 19 acres of public space.

The third phase of the development was divided into four stages to accommodate the extension of the Northern line to Battersea. The new western entrance at Battersea Power Station Underground station is being built as part of phase 3B.
