Morgan Sindall to design new Colindale tube station

WEEKLY NEWSLETTER SIGN UP

The detailed design for the redevelopment of Colindale Tube station on London Underground’s Northern line will be undertaken by Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, which has secured the contract following a mini competition using London Underground’s Civils & Tunnelling Framework.

The Morgan Sindall team has developed several value engineering options to simplify the construction and ongoing maintenance of the station, resulting in a more efficient construction solution that retains the original architectural philosophy linking to the area’s aviation history.

Once complete, the upgrades will have created a larger, more accessible and aesthetically pleasing station, with step-free access from street to platform. By virtue of the new station being located over the existing railway, the works will also release land in the immediate area for further development and regeneration.

A TfL spokesperson confirmed the award: “We have awarded a contract to Morgan Sindall for the design of the Colindale tube station redevelopment, which has significant third-party funding.

“This will include a completely new station building with more space for customers, the installation of lifts making the station step-free and an enlarged ticket hall.

“The project is in the early stages and we will provide further updates as it progresses.”

Peter Kirk, managing director of Morgan Sindall Infrastructure for rail, responded: “Our team is delighted to be mobilising for this package of work and to have the opportunity to transform Colindale station for the benefit of the local community.”

Colindale station was opened in 1924, when the Highgate and Hampstead line was extended to Edgeware. It was severely damaged during the Blitz in 1940, when 13 people on a train at the station were killed following a direct hit by a bomb.

A temporary wooden station was erected that lasted until 1962, when the current station was built amongst shops at the foot of two blocks of flats.
