Tottenham Hale

Tottenham Hale as part of the Upper Lea Valley regeneration plans, has been identified for 5,000 new homes and 4,000 new jobs with the vision to transform the area in to a new district centre.

Significant transport investment is the focus, this includes:

  • Removal of the Tottenham Hale gyratory system
  • Construction of a new bus station and public square
  • Tottenham Hale station improvement
  • Upgrade of the West Anglia main line by Network Rail, - this will enable a more frequent local rail service at Tottenham Hale

Underground station

Tottenham Hale station is an important transport hub and a strategic interchange with links to central London, the West End, the City of London, Stratford, Stansted Airport and Cambridge. However, existing transport capacity constraints at the station highlight the need for improvements to accommodate future demand at Tottenham Hale.

What is happening?

We have been working closely with London Borough of Haringey, Greater London Authority, Network Rail and Greater Anglia to develop proposals to improve Tottenham Hale Station.

Proposed improvements include:

  • Creating a new landmark entrance to the station
  • Enlarged station concourse to reduce crowding and queuing
  • Step-free access to National Rail platforms via a new bridge (being provided by Network Rail)
  • Extension of existing footbridge to Hale Village to form a new pedestrian route to the station
  • Improving interchange by relocating the Greater Anglia and LU gate lines
  • Closure of the Ferry Lane subway
  • Relocation of the station vent shaft and a new station control facility
  • Provision for over-station development
  • Provision of new retail units

A lift will be provided on the new Hale Village pedestrian link. The exact location and design of this is subject to the outcome of engineering feasibility work for the West Anglia Main Line upgrade being undertaken by Network Rail.


    The improved station will be a focal point of the new district centre and an iconic gateway to Tottenham and the Upper Lea Valley. Passengers will benefit from improved:

    • Interchange and journey times
    • Accessibility and legibility
    • Ambience and journey experience
    • Retail provision

    Next steps

    The plans for improving Tottenham Hale station were approved by Haringey Council's Planning Committee on 10 March 2014.

    A Design and Build Contractor will be appointed in late 2014. Work is expected to start on the site at the end of 2015 and take approximately 18 months to complete.

    We will continue to update this website and inform local residents and station users through the next stages of the project.

      Gyratory and bus station

      Hale Road, Monument Way and High Road are now two-way for all traffic, making local shops and facilities more accessible.

      We are reducing the impact traffic has on those living and working in Broad Lane. Traffic is now directed along Monument Way and High Road. We'll be making Broad Lane two-way from Spring 2014 allowing residents better access to the area.

      Tottenham Hale bus station is currently closed while a new bigger bus station is being built. Buses will serve the new bus station once it opens in September 2014. While we build the new bus station, temporary arrangements are in place for bus services that normall serve Tottenham Hale station.

      Taxi pick-up and set down points have also changed to be nearer Watermead Way.

      Maps and information updates

      Information panels outside Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters stations will be regularly updated with what work is happening and where. There will also be information about diversions to bus services.

      Balfour Beatty will have an onsite information point where concerns about the project can be discussed with the projects community relations officer.
