Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London
Free and open to all
The Northern Line Extension (NLE) is the first major line extension on the London Underground network in 20 years. The NLE enables the regeneration of the Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea areas; supporting 25,000 new jobs and more than 20,000 new homes. The project involves extensive tunnelling works and the construction of two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station. David Smith (TfL NLE Head of Engineering and Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers) will be giving an overview of the works and providing an insight into the multi-disciplinary engineering challenges.
The lecture will cover how this project is:
- Part of the Battersea Power Station regeneration project with two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station connecting an area of SW London to the Underground system
- Part of the upgrading the train service on London Underground’s Northern Line to provide decreased journey times from Battersea Power Station to the West End or the City
- Providing reduced pressure on Vauxhall station, and relief to the existing Northern line south of Kennington
- Targeted for completion in 2020

David Smith : Head of Engineering for the Northern Line Extension, Transport for London
David Smith is presently the Head of engineering for the Northern Line Extension Programme of works. The Northern line Extension is the most significant addition to the Underground Network in a generation and whilst the design and construction techniques employed are not, in and of themselves, innovative the scale and complexity of the works and the benefits they will bring are very significant. He is responsible on behalf of TfL for the delivery of engineering design and implementation across the programme of works.
