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.
BenefitsThe current one-way system has high volumes of traffic but limited crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists. This is a barrier for many residents living 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 contractor Balfour Beatty started removing the one-way system.
Work has started in the High Road, between Seven Sisters Road and Monument Way, and will then progress around the gyratory moving to Monument Way in early 2013. The bigger and better bus station will be the last section to be built.
The scheme will be completed by December 2014.
Information panels outside Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters stations will be regularly updated with what work is happening and where. There will also be information about diversions to bus services.
Balfour Beatty will have an onsite information point where concerns about the project can be discussed with the projects community relations officer.
