The 1960s-era station will be replaced with a new ‘landmark’ building, according to Transport for London (TfL).

It will include a ticket hall and a lift to deliver step-free access for the first time, with work expected to start this year.

Colindale station is also set to temporarily close from summer 2024 to the end of autumn, although dates have yet to be announced.

The work is part of a £43.1m project to upgrade both Colindale and Leyton Tube stations.

Both Colindale and Leyton stations serve rapidly growing communities, with the upgraded Tube stations set to support major housing developments.

A TfL spokesman said: ‘It means that TfL can now go ahead with letting the construction contract before the end of this year for the rebuilding of Colindale station which, in its current state, was projected to reach passenger capacity by 2026.

‘Leyton station will also get a new ticket hall built adjacent to the existing one, two new staircases and two lifts making the station fully accessible for the first time and ensuring it has capacity to support future passenger demand. 

‘The construction contract is expected to be awarded in summer 2024.’
