Question

The rear entrance to Golders Green Station at Finchley Road immediately adjacent to the 102 and H2 bus stop was closed several years ago, meaning bus users on these routes have to waste approximately 5 minutes in order to reach the front entrance to the station. Will you ask TFL to reopen this rear entrance and if not, why?

TfL has to prioritise its spending and, at the current time, the money that would be needed to re-open the rear entrance at Golders Green could be better used to make improvements elsewhere, to the benefit of a greater number of customers.

Re-opening this entrance after 20 years of disuse would require significant cost to demolish the offices that have been constructed, install and staff the gateline, install a secure staffing area, and modernise the CCTV and lighting.

TfL will however continue to keep this under review to ensure that it is making the best use of its assets and maximising value for customers.
