Morgan Sindall to carry out detailed design of new Colindale Underground station

Transport for London has awarded Morgan Sindall a contract to complete the detailed design for the redevelopment of Colindale Tube station on London Underground’s Northern line.

Morgan Sindall Infrastructure secured the contract following a mini-competition using London Underground’s Civils & Tunnelling Framework. The company developed several value engineering options to simplify the construction and ongoing maintenance of the station, resulting in a more efficient construction solution that still retains the original architectural philosophy linking to the area’s aviation history.

The proposed upgrades will create 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 said: “We have awarded a contract to Morgan Sindall for the design of the Colindale Tube station redevelopment, which has significant third-party funding. This would 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 – rail at Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, commented: “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.”
