Northern Line Extension update

Our sites at Kennington, Nine Elms and Battersea remain in “safe-stop” mode, meaning site-work on the project has been suspended during this coronavirus lockdown phase. We do conduct regular inspections to check all areas are safe and we maintain 24/7 security at each site.

Behind the scenes, we continue to work on processes such as design, assurance, off-site manufacture and planning to ensure we can resume site-work effectively once the go-ahead is given. Any resumption of work on our sites will be in accordance with Public Health England and Government guidelines. We will update you when we can on any progress in this area.

All Community Liaison Group meetings have been suspended until further notice. Again, we will update you when we have more to report.

Ferrovial Agroman Laing O’Rourke (FLO), our main contractor on the project, has kindly donated masks, overalls, gloves and respirators to the NHS to help with the effort in fighting this awful disease. Our thanks to them for this caring gesture.

Keep safe and well.
