The council is also working with Network Rail on a comprehensive package of improvements at Battersea Park Station, to cater for increased passenger numbers as more people move to Nine Elms alongside new businesses.
“We will now be turning our attention to securing similar advances at Wandsworth Common and Queenstown Road stations which are the only two remaining overground stations in the borough which lack sufficient step-free access.”
