Tottenham Hale upgrade will improve passenger service

The plans for the Tottenham Hale station upgrade were detailed in papers for yesterday’s TfL Finance and Policy committee meeting. The ambitious scheme, estimated to cost £32 million is due for completion in 2018 and will include a full-scale refurbishment of the ticket office area. Proposals have also been made for the installation of a new lift and footbridge to Hale Village and a new escalator and stairway which I have called for repeatedly and raised with the Mayor of London and TfL.

This is about providing better opportunities for local people. Tottenham Hale has been identified as a major growth area in London, but if we are to achieve our ambitious plans, it is essential that we are well connected to the rest of London and beyond.

I welcome the additional funding which finally brings step-free access to people travelling from the Hale Village development. I would urge TfL to work with the local community to keep them well informed and listen to any concerns they may have.
