Tottenham Hale Underground Station Improvements
Tottenham Hale is the commercial heart of Tottenham, and is a key area for growth and regeneration. Read the background information at the bottom of the page for further information on all of the Tottenham Hale Improvements and how they are going to benefit the community.
What is happening?
Alongside these other projects, we have been working closely with London Borough of Haringey, Greater London Authority, Network Rail and Greater Anglia to develop proposals to improve Tottenham Hale Station.
Proposed improvements include:
- creating a new landmark entrance to the station
- increasing the capacity of the station concourse by doubling the size of the current ticket hall
- improving interchange by relocating the Greater Anglia and London Underground gatelines
The proposals will reduce crowding and congestion in the ticket hall and improve journey times for passengers interchanging at the station
An information event is being held on Wednesday 11th December 2013 from 14:00 - 20:00 at The Engine Room, 109 Vickers Court, Waterside way, N17 9FT. You can find out more about the improvements at the event or by visiting this web page after 12th December.
Tottenham Hale Traffic System Improvements
Working with Haringey Council, we will remove the current one way system, create a bigger and better bus station at Tottenham Hale and make the area more accessible for all. Work will be completed by December 2014.
To keep London moving, our contractors are working outside of peak hours to make the changes required for two-way operation.
We will be making Monument Way, Hale Road and The Hale two-way to all traffic. This will happen in two stages over two weekends: 12-13 October and 19-20 October.
From 20 October, the bus station at Tottenham Hale will close, while we build a bigger one. The last stop for buses on route 41 will be in The Hale and the first stop in Watermead Way. The first and last stop for buses on route 192 will be in Watermead Way.
The taxi pick up and set down point will also be changed to be nearer to Watermead Way.
Bus routes 123 and 230 will serve Monument Way and The Hale in both directions from 20 October.
BenefitsRemoving the one-way system will aid the regeneration of Tottenham. There will be better access for residents, and the area will be more accessible for those walking or cycling in the area.
To improve the area, we will:
- Build a bigger and better bus station at Tottenham Hale
- Install more cycle parking at Tottenham and Seven Sisters stations and other key points in the area
- Create more crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists and improve existing ones with tactile paving and audible signals
- Improve the look and feel of the area with mature trees, new seating and upgraded street lighting
- Create a new public square outside Tottenham Hale station
- Improve the setting of the Tottenham High Cross
- Reduce the impact of traffic on Broad Lane with a 20mph speed limit and more crossing points
- Introduce two-way traffic on the High Road, Monument Way and Broad Lane
- Improve how bus routes operate in the area and where bus stops are located
- Improve interchange at Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters stations between bus services, the Victoria Line and National Rail services
Work began in October 2012 when our contractor Balfour Beatty started removing the one-way system.
Once Monument Way, Hale Road and The Hale are made two way, work will start to build the bigger and better bus station at Tottenham Hale and to make Broad Lane two way.
The scheme will be completed by December 2014.
We will be updating this page as works progress, outlining what is happening and how this might impact you.
Balfour Beatty will have an onsite information point where concerns about the project can be discussed with the projects community relations officer.

The document below sets out our answers to questions we have been asked about the project. If your question is not answered by this document please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tottenham Hale is located within the Upper Lea Valley Opportunity Area, where there are plans for the creation of 15,000 new jobs and 16,200 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 in to 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.
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, existing capacity constraints at the station highlights the need for improvements to accommodate future demand at Tottenham Hale.
Tottenham Hale is the focus of significant transport investment with projects including:
- the removal of the Tottenham Hale gyratory system
- the delivery of a new bus station
- the upgrade of the West Anglia Mainline, being delivered by Network Rail, which will enable a more frequent local rail service at Tottenham Hale
