TRANSPORT FOR London has appointed Taylor Woodrow to design and rebuild White Hart Lane station by spring 2019.
The station, part of the London Overground network, will gain a new ticket hall at the centre of the platforms, a new station forecourt to improve the public realm, a new entrance providing access to Penshurst Road and step-free access from the street to the platform. More central access to the platforms to reduce bottlenecks is also promised, along with new cycle parking, improved closed circuit television and Legible London wayfinding to help people continue their journeys on foot. Work is expected to start by autumn 2017, and the contract is valued at £17.8 million.
TfL says the redevelopment supports regeneration in the area, which includes plans for the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, a museum, hotel and 585 new homes, as well as 2,000 homes as part of the High Road West masterplan and a further 3,000 homes in the wider North Tottenham area.
