Major upgrades including new lifts will see a tube station closed for six months later this year.

Colindale station, on the Edgware branch of the Northern line, will close on June 7 until December to allow upgrade work to continue, including removing the existing canopy and replacing staircases.

From December, a temporary pedestrian passageway will open to allow customers to access the platforms at Colindale via the existing ticket hall and new staircases, ahead of the station upgrade finishing in autumn 2025.

Work has already started to prepare the upgrade to Colindale station, where the 1960s-built entrance will be replaced with a new, landmark station building.

A large ticket hall and a lift giving step-free access from street to platform for the first time will also be built.

The revamp is funded by the Government’s Levelling Up Fund, and significant contributions also being made by Barnet Council, local developers and Transport for London (TfL).

In December, TfL announced that £43.1 million from the Government had been allocated to upgrade both Colindale and Leyton stations, allowing step-free access for the first time.

While the station is closed, customers are advised to take local bus routes to nearby Northern line stations at Burnt Oak or Hendon Central, or to Kingsbury for the Jubilee line.

Nearby Thameslink rail services at Mill Hill Broadway or Hendon stations are also accessible using the local bus network.

TfL announced late in December that most of the Edgware branch – between Golders Green and Edgware - will shut in a series of temporary closures from April while Colindale station is replaced.

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

Construction work to upgrade Colindale station – including piling, crane operation and demolition work - means it cannot be safely carried out when trains are running.

Temporary bus services will run between Golders Green and Edgware stations, and also to Canons Park station for Jubilee line services.

Weekday and weekend southbound services on the London Underground from Golders Green will not be affected.
