Six stations on the Northern line will be closed for several weeks next year as one station undergoes a major redevelopment.

Most of one branch of the Tube line – between Golders Green and Edgware - will be closed in 2024 while Colindale station replaced with a new building.

This means Golders Green, Brent Cross, Hendon Central, Colindale, Burnt Oak and Edgware underground stations will all be closed at certain points next year.

Earlier this month, Transport for London (TfL) announced that £43.1 million from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund has been allocated to upgrade both Colindale and Leyton stations, meaning they will have step-free access for the first time.

TfL said Colindale station, in its current state, was projected to reach passenger capacity by 2026.

Under the new plans, the 1960s entrance will be replaced with a new building, spacious ticket hall and step-free access, with work set to begin in 2024.

It will require partial closures between Edgware and Golders Green next year, and the temporary closure of Colindale station.

In a TfL document published on December 28, these are the current dates that the temporary closures will be in place:

  • April 2 to April 11
  • June 15 to June 16
  • June 22 to June 23
  • June 29 to June 30

TfL said that there could be additional days that the stations will be shut, however these have not been confirmed at this time.

It added Colindale is “one of London’s most deprived areas” and the redevelopment will be “central” to enabling the building of 11,400 new homes for people in the area.

Barnet Council leader Cllr Barry Rawlings said: “It’s great that Colindale residents will be getting an upgraded Tube station that can handle increased demand in the area and will provide step-free access.

“The awarding of Levelling Up funding is a welcome New Year present for local residents and visitors.

“The Colindale tube station redevelopment scheme is precisely the kind of project Levelling Up should support, to boost house building and spread opportunity for so many living in one of the capital’s most deprived areas. Better transport links means better jobs and better pay.”
