The planned extension of the London Underground's Northern Line to serve two new stations in Battersea, including the new US Embassy in Nine Elms, could be delayed to 2021. The plans originally indicated that the two new stations, to be named Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station, would be open by December 2020. Nine Elms station will be a short walk from the new American Embassy in London.
However, as reported by New Civil Engineer just before the Holidays, sources now indicate that the extended line could be delayed by up to 9 months, with an opening scheduled for 2021.
Although a setback for the many Americans and others who require travel to the American Embassy in London, there remain a number of other ways in which to travel to Nine Elms. The American's article, Nine Ways to Nine Elms, points out a number of existing bus routes and other methods for traveling to the Embassy which should make your journey easier, and includes a Transport for London widget which allows you to plan your easiest route to the Embassy.
In the meantime, Vauxhall remains the nearest London Underground station to the Embassy.
