The new Tube stations at Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms will be part of Zone 1 when they open this Autumn, it has been confirmed.
The travel news comes just months ahead of the opening of the 3.2km Northern Line Extension from Kennington into the heart of the Nine Elms ‘opportunity area’.
Transport for London have now announced that Kennington station will be changed from Zone 2 to Zone 1/2 which means that passengers travelling between Battersea Power Station or Nine Elms and Kennington will only pay a Zone 1 fare.
A railway arch in Nine Elms is being opened up as a new pedestrian route between the new Tube stations, Wandsworth Road and Nine Elms Lane. Architecture and design practice Projects Office were selected by Wandsworth Council and London Festival of Architecture to develop a welcoming arch ‘gateway’ design for Arch 42.
