In recent years, the two new Northern Line stations have seen massive building and regeneration work in the vicinity.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said that the extension will hugely improve the connectivity between the vibrant, growing south London neighbourhoods and the rest of the capital.

He added that the extension will also “help to support thousands of new jobs and homes as we move forward with London’s recovery from the pandemic.”
