About VolkerFitzpatrick - Brent Cross West Station

VolkerFitzpatrick is currently constructing a new rail station on the Midland Main Line and Thameslink routes for Barnet Council, as part of its Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration programme.

Brent Cross West Thameslink Station is due to open in 2022, and will be the first major new mainline station in London in over a decade - positioned on the Midland Main Line between existing Hendon and Cricklewood stations, enabling through journeys from Luton to Brighton.

The new £40 million state-of-the-art station is a key element of the ambitious Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme.

VolkerFitzpatrick started construction work in 2020, quickly completing the piling foundations needed to construction the new station, and has continued to build this new station, with its most recent milestone being the installation of the second part of a new overbridge, which will provide the public with a pedestrian and cycleway crossing over the Midland Main Line.

Once opened, the new station will provide a commute to reach Kings Cross St Pancras, Central London’s best-connected transport hub with direct rail access to Europe via Eurostar, in under 15 minutes.


Once visitors arrive at our office, you will be greeted by the team and given a site induction. From there, you will receive your PPE and be taken on a site tour. Our team will guide visitors to the site's viewing platform, before talking through what is happening on site, showcasing the areas which are under construction, highlighting key areas for development, and discussing environmental topics.

After the site tour, visitors will be given the chance to meet key members of the team, to hear about a career within rail and the career paths available into VolkerFitzpatrick.
