Plans have been approved to overhaul Tottenham Hale rail station, amid a vast development which will ultimately bring 5,000 new homes to the area.
The station will be redeveloped to support its status as an international transport hub – with a larger concourse, improved step-free access for passengers and a new entrance via footbridge for residents living at Hale Village.
The revamped station will complete a £110 million investment in transport at Tottenham Hale.
Transport for London will complete the new station by 2017.
Haringey Council has committed itself to bringing up to 5,000 new homes to Tottenham Hale by 2025. The £350m Hale Village scheme has already seen nearly 2,000 new homes and student apartments linked to Central Saint Martins College on the doorstep of the Lee Valley Regional Park.
Councillor Alan Strickland, cabinet member for regeneration and housing, said: “This landmark station will support the wealth of major regeneration schemes already underway in Tottenham Hale, making it one of the capital’s most exciting places to live and work.
“Tottenham is brilliantly connected to the rest of London, and we want to make the most of that to build better housing, create more jobs and make it easier for our residents to find long-lasting employment.”
