After years of campaigning, South Londoners are getting the tube extension they've been hoping for.
The Government is expected to announce that a one billion pound extension to the Northern Line has been given the go-ahead today.
The Northern Line Extension will create two new tube stops in Battersea: one near Wandsworth Road and another next to Battersea Power Station.
It forms wider plans to regenerate Vauxhall and Battersea that also sees news homes and commercial buildings being proposed along the riverfront as well as the new American embassy being built in the area.
