The dates for when six Northern line stations will be closed temporarily as one station undergoes a major redevelopment have changed.

It was announced last year that most of one branch of the Tube line – between Golders Green and Edgware – would be closed for several weeks in 2024 while Colindale station is 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 this year.

Just before the start of 2024, TfL published provisional dates for when the branch would be closed from April 2 to April 11 and select dates in June.

But this has now been amended as of today (February 12), with changes to the June schedule and a date proposed for July.

The current temporary closure dates set are:

  • April 2 to April 11
  • April 8 to April 11
  • June 8 to June 9
  • June 15 to June 16
  • June 29 to June 30
  • July 27 to July 28

Meanwhile Colindale station will be closed from June 7 until December 2024 as construction takes place at the site.

Last year 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 that 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 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.”
