Part closures planned for Northern Line

TfL is reminding customers that the first in a series of part closures of the Northern Line between Golders Green and Edgware as major upgrades to Colindale Tube station begin in April. The first planned closures will be from Tuesday 2nd to Thursday 11th April, 2024. There will also be closures scheduled for the same section of the line over weekends in June and July this year.

As a result, there will be no Tube service to or from Brent Cross, Hendon Central, Colindale, Burnt Oak or Edgware Underground stations. Northern line trains will still run as normal to and from Golders Green, with a regular service on the rest of the Northern line. Rail replacement bus services will run from Golders Green to Edgware stations as well as to Canons Park station for Jubilee line services over the closure periods.

Detailed travel advice, including alternative routes, for customers affected by these closures is available on TfL’s website

The part closures are part of the major upgrades to Colindale Tube station, including a larger ticket hall and a lift to give the station step-free access for the first time. The major upgrades will mean it has to close from Friday 7 June until December 2024.  

TfL adds that the part closures of the Northern line are “necessary due to the proximity to the track of some of the construction work to upgrade Colindale station.” This includes piling, crane operation and demolition work which means that it cannot safely carry out the work when trains are running.

During these closures, TfL will also carry out additional track maintenance and engineering work “which will help improve overall services along this section of the Northern line, offering a more reliable and comfortable service for customers.”
