Northern line tube extension could put Wandsworth in Zone 1

Wandsworth Guardian: The current tube map The current tube map

Two new Northern Line stations could see Wandsworth commuters gain their first zone one train station.

Underground stations are set to be built in Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station as part of the multi-billion pound development of the region.

As part of this process Transport for London (TfL) will have to decide if the stations are to be part of zone one or two.

Wandsworth Guardian:

They were initially allocated to zone two but TfL is now proposing to put them in zone one

A final decision on the re-zoning will be made by the secretary of state for transport in the autumn.

Wandsworth Guardian: Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia: "We cannot absorb costs beyond our control"

Councillor Ravi Govindia leader of Wandsworth Council said:  "Zone one status will draw more commercial occupiers to Battersea and help us create 25,000 new jobs in this underused part of the riverside.

"This tube extension has the potential to expand the central London economy into Wandsworth and deliver the growth, opportunities and new homes our city needs."

I sincerely hope that the proposed rezoning is not implemented, as it would mean that all Wandsworth residents travelling by train to Vauxhall, then by tube to current zone 2 stations e.g. Stockwell, Brixton, Clapham Common etc would be travelling via zone 1, with a corresponding steep increase in the cost of the journey.

Another concession to the all star spangled Mission Control base of the New American Embassy. Utter rip off as usual. It's all part of the UN Agenda 21 Zoning to which Gov-India's nest have signed without public knowledge or approval under the misnomer of 'sustainability' - well WE can't afford to sustain these desperately sick and avaritious psychopaths who do deals with high-tec firms to irradiated all residents with wi-fi (in the lamposts no less) for a nice little earner of £500K. Again without health or public consultation.
