Passengers using White Hart Lane London Overground station are being promised a new ticket hall, step-free access from the street to platform and new cycle parking.
The improvements are part of a package of measures Transport for London will deliver alongside Taylor Woodrow which it’s appointed to rebuild the station over the next two years.
Other benefits include an additional entrance providing access to Penshurst Road, better access from the new ticket hall to platforms and new CCTV.
Work is expected to start this autumn with the improvements due to be completed in spring 2019. Passengers are being promised the station will continue to operate “throughout the majority” of the work.
Jon Fox, TfL’s Director for London Rail, said: “White Hart Lane station is set for a radical transformation to make life easier and more comfortable for customers.
“The station will see lifts installed for the first time, making it more accessible for everyone, and the new entrance will provide better connections with the local area, supporting the new homes and jobs being created in Tottenham.”
Jez Haskins, Taylor Woodrow’s TfL Sector Director, added: “Taylor Woodrow are pleased to be delivering what will become a new landmark station for TfL, which will benefit from the skills and expertise that we have gained in station upgrades at Victoria and Tottenham Court Road.
“We look forward to working with TfL and all of the local stakeholders to successfully transform White Hart Lane station.”
