Willesden Green will not be added to Met Line

Willesden Green, which has been a temporary stop on the Metropolitan Line during planned Jubilee Line closures, will not become a permanent addition.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson confirmed there were no plans to add the station in response to GLA Member for Brent & Harrow, Nvin Shah, as Mayor’s Question Time, reports the Harrow Observer.

He said: “Stopping Metropolitan line trains at Willesden Green station during planned Jubilee line closures has clearly provided significant benefits for people affected by the closures, whether travelling to Willesden Green or connecting with buses to continue their journey to another station.

“However, stopping Metropolitan line trains at the station permanently would have the opposite effect.

“It would give only a very marginal benefit to those using the station, who have a fast and frequent Jubilee line service, with easy connections to the Metropolitan line at Wembley Park or Finchley Road.

“Conversely it would make journey times longer for the much larger group of passengers already on Metropolitan line trains. Transport for London therefore has no plans to make this change.”
