We are carrying out work which will provide step-free access and a larger ticket hall at Colindale Tube station. For more details of these improvements, see our project page for Colindale station step-free access.

We need to:

  • Carry out a series of partial closures of the Northern line between Golders Green and Edgware
  • Close Colindale station from Friday 7 June until December 2024

This webpage will be updated regularly.

Northern line part closures

There will be a series of part closures of the Northern line between Golders Green and Edgware in spring and summer 2024.

During the closures, there will be no Tube service to or from Brent Cross, Hendon Central, Colindale, Burnt Oak or Edgware stations.

Northern line trains will continue to run as normal to/from Golders Green. There will be a regular service on the rest of the Northern line
