Battersea Power Station opens Coaling Jetty to the public

Postby Community Editor » Wed Aug 07, 2019 9:18 am

Battersea Power Station has unveiled its redeveloped Coaling Jetty, which is open to the public for the first time ever.

The Grade II*-listed jetty will host live music, food and drink, wellness sessions and family activities for visitors during a string of riverside events this month.

The 133m jetty was built between 1929 and 1932 to service the iconic power station, but fell into disuse when the site was decommissioned in 1983.

The revamped jetty will be an extension of the riverwalk at Circus West Village, the first phase of a mammoth regeneration plan at Battersea.

The power station development is set to be completed in 2021.

A £1bn Northern Line extension serving Nine Elms and Battersea is also due to open that year, after being hampered by delays.

“The Coaling Jetty at Battersea Power Station provides our residents and visitors with a fantastic viewpoint along the Nine Elms waterfront, highlighting the scale of urban development here in Wandsworth,” said Wandsworth Council deputy leader Jonathan Cook.
