Uxbridge Road tube station

Uxbridge Road tube station

Uxbridge Road was a London Underground station on a branch of the Metropolitan Line which closed on 20 September 1940.

The branch ran north from Addison Road (now Kensington (Olympia)) station following the mainline tracks of the West London Railway northwards and joined the Metropolitan Line branch from Hammersmith (today's Hammersmith & City Line) just south of Latimer Road station. Uxbridge Road station was situated on the current site of the Holland Park Roundabout, just a short walk from Shepherd's Bush station on the Central Line.

Southbound Metropolitan Line services from Uxbridge Road usually terminated at Addison Road as did northbound District Line services from Earl's Court station; however, some services ran through from Latimer Road to Earl's Court, thus forming the so-called Outer Circle.

Although Uxbridge Road station and its branch were closed in 1940, they continued to appear on the Underground map until 1947.

Resurrection of station

As part of the redevelopment of the White City site, a new mainline and London Overground station named Shepherd's Bush opened in 2008, close to the original Uxbridge Road station site as an interchange with Shepherd's Bush Central Line station.
