Colindale station to be closed for months due to rebuild

Colindale Station is set to close for an extensive upgrade, which is likely to take months to complete. The renovation aims to modernise the station and improve accessibility for all passengers.

The upgrade includes the installation of step-free access, addressing a crucial need for better accessibility at the station. Additionally, a larger ticket hall is planned, expected to ease congestion and improve passenger flow.

While the station is closed, commuters will need to seek alternative travel options. Transport for London (TfL) will provide updates and guidance to help mitigate travel disruptions during this period. The closure date for the station has not yet been confirmed but completion of the project is expected by Autumn 2025.

David Rowe, TfL’s Director of Investment Delivery Planning, said: “The work at Colindale Tube station will make a huge difference to customers, upgrading the station and installing step-free access for the first time. It will mean the station can cope better with demand and improve journeys for everyone who uses it.

“In order to facilitate this vital and complex engineering work, the station will need to be closed for part of the works for safety reasons. We are still finalising details of the closure and our plans to help customers during the work but will be communicating these widely once confirmed and are committed to doing everything we can to enable Londoners to continue to complete journeys using the public transport network.”
