Imperial Wharf station opens

Mayor Boris Johnson opened a new £7.8m Imperial Wharf station yesterday, which will serve Fulham, Chelsea, and West Brompton. The station plan was in limbo for more than 15 years before Hammersmith and Fulham and Kensington and Chelsea councils agreed funding with developers St George and Transport for London last year. Boris says the new station will provide West Londoners with with rail connections to Clapham and Willesdon.
