Businesses to benefit from extension

Transport for London have insisted that both residents and businesses in south London will benefit from the extension of the Northern line, despite protests from dog walkers.

Michele Dix, Managing Director for Planning at Transport for London, said:

“Our proposed new Northern line extension for south London would create tube access for thousands of people and help support up to 25,000 jobs and 16,000 new homes in the Vauxhall and Nine Elms area."There will be no permanent loss of park space in Kennington Park

During construction the existing dog walking area will be temporarily relocated to another area of the park. “

"Local residents in Kennington will benefit from an improved park area and a new community building. "
