Answer for Northern Line

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are currently no plans to extend the Northern line beyond Morden to St Helier Hospital.

Whilst London Underground has previously looked at a possible extension to Morden South, the initial assessment indicated that this would have a poor business case with the estimated costs likely to considerably exceed the additional benefits such an extension would bring.

Regular bus services already provide good access to the Northern line in this area, and Morden South and St Helier already have direct rail services to central London.
