Bridge over Crescent Road
Bridge over Crescent Road
Originally part of the Edgware, Highgate and London Railway, the Northern Line routes through to Mill Hill East from Finchley Central. The line, which originally routed through to Edgware, was always single track but the bridges, as clearly visible from the extended piers here, were constructed wide enough to permit double tracks for future expansion. Unfortunately, the Edgware line fell upon bad times as road transport grew and Underground services were proposed for Edgware in the 1930's. The branch, beyond Mill Hill East, saw limited traffic and was closed to passengers in 1961, but freight services continued until 1964. A current 1995 stock Northern Line train crosses the bridge en-route to Mill Hill East.
