Tottenham Hale

Benefits of the work

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 opportunities

Tube/rail station

Tottenham Hale station is an important transport hub and interchange, with links to central London, the West End, the City of London, Stratford, Stansted Airport and Cambridge. However, constraints at the station mean we needed to make improvements to allow for future demand at Tottenham Hale.

We've worked closely with the London Borough of Haringey, Greater London Authority, Network Rail and Greater Anglia to improve Tottenham Hale station.

Improvements include:

  • A new landmark entrance to the station
  • Enlarged station concourse to reduce crowding and queuing
  • Step-free access to National Rail platforms via two new lifts and a bridge created by Network Rail
  • Relocation of the station vent shaft
  • Provision for over-station development
  • Space for new retail units

Minor works continue.

Improvements to the area

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 transform Tottenham.

Background

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 into 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.
