Answered By:

TfL is keen to progress this extension which would use roads in both Lambeth and Wandsworth. It has been in discussion with the Wandsworth Council on the use of Old Devonshire Road, necessary for the route to reach Balham High Road. It is also organising a further route test on a Friday as requested by Wandsworth, and representatives of both Wandsworth and Lambeth will be asked to attend.
