Rail replacement bus services in Canons Park and Edgware to start next month

Transport for London (TfL) has announced part closures of the Northern line between Golders Green and Edgware to facilitate the major upgrade of Colindale Tube station.

Scheduled from April to July 2024, these closures will affect Brent Cross, Hendon Central, Colindale, Burnt Oak, and Edgware stations. During closures, Golders Green will remain operational, with rail replacement bus services to Edgware and Canons Park for Jubilee line connections.

The closures are essential for station upgrades, including a larger ticket hall and lift installation for step-free access. Additional track maintenance and engineering works aim to enhance service reliability and comfort. TfL advises affected commuters to consult detailed travel advice for alternative routes and arrangements.
