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 goal of transforming the area into a new district centre.
Significant transport investment is the focus. This includes:
The changes will make the area more accessible and safer for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users.
Improvements began with a redesigned taxi rank space outside the station in January 2017.
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.
We have been working closely with the London Borough of Haringey, Greater London Authority, Network Rail and Greater Anglia to improve Tottenham Hale station.
The walking route into and out of the station has changed. Until the new station opens, It will run between the front of the new station building and the bus station. Step-free access is still available.
Other station upgrade works are progressing. Delays in 2019 happened because we had less access than we needed to the railway line above ground. However, we will be able to work during overnight closures and open the new station by late 2020.
As part of work to change the road layout, we will reconfigure the bus station in three phases. After this work starts - planned for December 2019 - some bus routes will pick-up and set down in different places. Please check posters at the bus and Tube stations to find the stop you need.
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:
The plans for improving Tottenham Hale station were approved by Haringey Council's Planning Committee in 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.
