LONDON: The launch of the Northern line extension (NLE), the first major extension to the London Underground Network this century, marks one of the single most significant milestones to date in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station and the transformation of this part of London.

Battersea Project Holding Company chairman Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin said the pivotal infrastructure project would significantly enhance the connectivity of this part of London. 

“This is a proud day for Malaysia and all those involved in transforming the historic iconic Power Station and its surrounding area, being the largest Malaysian investment in the United Kingdom into a new destination where people can live, work and enjoy,” he said.

This rail extension is a gamechanger for Battersea and Nine Elms and undoubtedly makes Battersea Power Station one of the most well-connected destinations in the capital, added Battersea Power Station Development Company chairman Datuk Wong Tuck Wai.  

Battersea Power Station has contributed over £300mil (RM1.7bil) to the NLE, which runs from Kennington to Battersea Power Station via Nine Elms and has enabled the regeneration of both these areas. 

With its very own Zone 1 London Underground station now open, this exciting new riverside neighbourhood is expected to draw Londoners, international visitors and workers from across the capital with journey times to the West End and the City taking about 15 minutes, boosting the local economy and creating over 17,000 jobs.

Earlier this year, homeowners were handed the keys to their new homes in Switch House West, the first significant element of the building to complete. 

The rest of the building will be completed in stages throughout the year, with residents moving into the Boiler House and Switch House East in the coming months. 

BPS is being redeveloped by a consortium comprising SP Setia Bhd, Sime Darby Property Bhd and the Employees Provident Fund. 

Improving transport links and connectivity to this area of London has been fundamental to the development from the very beginning, said Battersea Power Station Development Company chief executive officer Simon Murphy.

“As we countdown to the Power Station opening its doors to the public next year, we look forward to welcoming more visitors travelling on the new tube line from across the capital and further afield, to enjoy the thriving riverside neighbourhood we are creating here at Battersea Power Station,” he said.

Once open to the public next year, Battersea Power Station will house over 100 shops, bars and restaurants.
