Two tube stations, a train station, and a bit of tram track have all been given funding for upgrade works to commence.
All three upgrades tie in with new housing developments taking place right next to the stations, which is how the Growth Fund operates – part funded by TfL and part by local developers.
The recently refurbished tube station at Colindale, close to the RAF Museum, will be rebuilt.
A total of £5 million in funding is for a new station building with step-free access and new pedestrian and cycle links. The project will cost in total some £22 million.
This station will gain a third entrance to cope with increased demand, and provide easier access for bus passengers alighting at stops along Ilford Hill.
Walthamstow Central Station
As previously reported, there are plans to open a second entrance at the station to relieve pressure on the Victoria line platforms.
In total, £15 million has earmarked for improvements to station to be delivered as part of the (controversial) redevelopment of Walthamstow Mall
TfL is also planning to double-track the short length of tram line along the Elmers End branch of the Croydon tram, and build a second platform at the terminus station.
