1 min read

More news on the proposals outlined in the Government’s 2013 National Infrastructure Plan, as highlighted by Wandsworth Council press release.

Heathrow Rail Link
The 2013 National Infrastructure Plan (NIP) includes a commitment to investigate options for improving rail access to the airport from the south. A £1m study will now take place.

Brighton Main Line
The NIP commits the Government to investigating upgrades to the Brighton Main Line which connects Gatwick to Clapham Junction and London Victoria. Plans include a £50m redevelopment of Gatwick Station, a Network Rail study into capacity upgrades and ‘smart ticketing’.
Northern Line extension
NIP confirms the Government will back the Northern Line extension to Battersea with a £1bn borrowing guarantee. This follows the Greater London Authority, Transport for London and the Battersea Power Station developer signing a vital commercial agreement which clears the way for the Government guarantee to go through.
Crossrail 2
In addition, Clapham Junction is also on the proposed Crossrail 2 route which would connect the station to the London Underground network. Don’t get excited just now though, it’s only planned for 2025-2030 at the soonest 😉

CJAG website has been publishing local news for more than 14 years and remains committed to providing local community information and public interest journalism.

We aim to feature as much as possible on community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents and helping residents.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

Until recently, all stories, analysis and reports published have been made with the great help of many volunteers. However, at the end of the day it cost time and efforts and we are frustrated that we cannot do more: there are many subjects that we would like to cover but we need financial resources to help us providing regular information.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

2 ways of supporting our project

Do you think what we are doing is helping the community and you want to encourage us to do more? We have set up two ways of supporting our project:

  1. Paypal: For one-off contributions, you can just use your bank card. However if you wish to encourage and support us regularly with a small amount, you will need a Paypal account to set up a monthly subscription. Click here to donate.
  2. Patreon: this is a well-known membership platform that connects content creators with supporters. Mainly, it offers financial tools that let supporters subscribe to projects that give creators a predictable income stream as they continue to create content. Click here to subscribe and support us regularly.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
