Colindale Station, part of Northern Line

Lasting until December, Colindale station will be closed for a significant capacity expansion that will involve the installation of step-free access.

Customers are encouraged to use the bus to Burnt Oak or Hendon Central stations during the closure, or to Kingsbury in order to access the Jubilee line. As an alternative, customers can go to Hendon or Mill Hill Broadway to board a Thameslink train.

Kentish Town station, part of Northern Line

While station upgrades, including the replacement of escalators, are being carried out, Kentish Town station will be closed and Northern line trains will not stop there until after the summer.

TFL said due to other “unrelated work” that needs to be carried out at the station, Kentish Town will not be in use until September. Other maintenance repairs that will be carried out include deep cleaning of the station, painting and installing floor and wall tiling.

Central line

Londoners may have noticed a reduced service on the Central line since November 2023.

It’s not clear when Central line services will return to normal, with trains now running every 15 minutes. There is crowding on the Tube's longest line as a result of the 15-minute delays.

Due to a persistent lack of trains, the line has occasionally only been able to run around half of the 78 trains needed to run a peak service.

TFL says the disruptions are likely to continue for weeks, but they are trying to remedy the situation as quickly as they can. TfL commissioner Andy Lord acknowledged that a lack of money for frequent "heavy overhauls" over the past few years may cause the shortfall of trains to spread to other lines, including the Bakerloo, Northern, and Piccadilly, before its new trains arrive in 2025.
