The improvements will make the area more accessible and safer for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users.

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 Tube/rail station improvement
  • Upgrade of the West Anglia main line by Network Rail - this will enable a more frequent local rail service at Tottenham Hale

Tube/rail 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, constraints on existing transport capacity at the station mean we need to make improvements to allow for 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

We will keep this page updated to let inform local residents and station users know what to expect through the next stages of the project.

Improvements to the area

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

We introduced a two-way traffic system in 2015 to help reduce the impact of traffic in the area, and to create the opportunity for other developers and Haringey Council to continue the transformation of Tottenham.


Tottenham Hale is the commercial heart of Tottenham and a key area for growth and regeneration.

Tottenham Hale is located within the Upper Lea Valley Opportunity Area, where there are plans for the creation of 15,000 new jobs and 20,100 new homes.

At Tottenham Hale there is the capacity for 5,000 new homes and 4,000 new jobs and the vision is to transform the area in to a new district centre.

Tottenham Hale station will be a focal point of this new district centre and should be an iconic gateway to Tottenham and the Upper Lea Valley.
