Colindale Tube Station redevelopment, London

The Leader of Barnet Council, Cllr Barry Rawlings, has welcomed the Government’s announcement today (19 January) to award £29.5m of Levelling Up funding for the redevelopment of Colindale Tube station.

Colindale is one of London’s most deprived areas and the redevelopment of the Tube station will be central to enabling the building of 11,400 quality new homes for locals. Since 2011, Colindale’s population has grown by 70%, making the area around the station the second-fastest growing ward in London after the Stratford Olympic Park in Newham.

In its current state, the 1960s built station will reach passenger capacity by 2026. The redevelopment will increase the number of people the station can cope with and create step-free access, which will speed up journey times.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt used his Autumn Statement to reference the £2.1bn Levelling Up Fund earmarked for priority local infrastructure projects.

The Colindale station bid has been led by the Greater London Authority and has received broad cross-party support. Cllr Barry Rawlings said it will benefit tens of thousands of people:

“The awarding of the £29.5m Levelling Up funding is a welcome New Year present for those living at the sharp end of the cost of living crisis. The Colindale Tube station redevelopment scheme is precisely the kind of project Levelling Up should support, supporting house building and spreading opportunity for so many living in one of the capital’s most deprived areas. Better transport links means better jobs and better pay.”

Lucinda Turner, Assistant Director of Planning at the GLA and Director of Spatial Planning at TfL, said: “Making our transport network more accessible and inclusive is a top priority, as we know that a more accessible public transport network benefits everyone. These schemes are also key to supporting sustainable growth in these areas and help unlock the delivery of thousands of new homes.

“We’re delighted that, by working hand in hand with the boroughs, the joint bid with City Hall to fund making Colindale and Leyton Tube stations step-free has been successful. We look forward to working with the Government and local boroughs on these projects, as well as other successful bids in London that will enable increased walking, cycling and public transport.”

Barnet Council is now working with TfL to ensure that construction on the station improvements can begin as quickly as possible this year.

Totteridge House in Barnet, London – Building Information

• Colindale currently faces higher levels of deprivation compared to other areas in the borough and across the country – the area contains communities which are amongst the 10% most deprived LSOAs in England and top 5% in London.

• A much-improved station that aids the viability of ongoing and future regeneration schemes, whilst increasing access to economic, social and cultural opportunities, will help in tackling inequalities.

• There will be much-improved access to employment and services for current and future residents – including in the Colindale/Burnt Oak Opportunity Area identified in Mayor’s London Plan and other opportunity areas.

• The Colindale station upgrade is part of a successful £43m GLA bid to Levelling Up Fund Round 2 for the upgrade of Colindale and Leyton stations, including provision of step-free access.

• The Levelling Up Fund bid helps drive economic growth by boosting productivity, pay, jobs and living standards.

• As set out in the Levelling Up Fund prospectus, transport bids between £20-£50 million will be subject to further business case approval before the final allocation is shared.

• With a benefit/cost ratio of 3.9-1, the scheme is very good value for money and has an excellent strategic case.
