Crossrail 2 consultation results

Crossrail 2 map: Tottenham & Seven Sisters

The results of the Autumn 2015 consultation on Crossrail 2 have been published this week.

This new railway connecting London north-east to south-west could bring huge benefits to the local area as well as the wider metropolis. It will improve journey times across London, and ease congestion on the Victoria line.

However some concerns had been raised of the impact of the line – and its construction – locally.

Tottenham Hale tunnel portal

Of particular local interest is the plan to build a tunnel portal just south of Tottenham Hale. Around half of the 321 comments made with specific regard to building this tunnel entrance are classified as positive, including the comment that it would be “hugely beneficial”.

Some 50 comments were made stating environmental/social concerns (section 3...

Crossrail 2 for South Tottenham station

Crossrail 2 map: Tottenham & Seven Sisters

South Tottenham station will get a major upgrade if the Crossrail 2 plan goes ahead, with a direct entrance to the new subterranean platforms for fast trains into central London and beyond.

Once built, the proposed train service would provide a Crossrail 2 train every 4 minutes (or 15 trains an hour). Each train has the capacity to carry 1,500 passengers, being over 200m long (two full-sized football pitches) and can travel at up to 140 km/h (90 mph).

Crossrail 2 is still on the drawing boards at the moment, but the case for this north-south rail link gets stronger every day. It is vital to provide improved public transport in London. As the Evening Standard commented “the case for extra spending on Crossrail 2 is … now unanswerable

The current proposals reveal plans to:

• Two 250 m...

Tottenham Hale Gyratory: one way on way out

Users of Seven Sisters station and local cycle and foot paths will have noticed works on the new road layout have been well under way for a few months. But what’s the plan?

Transport for London is working on removing the “one way” – that’s the entire Tottenham Hale Gyratory – and restoring all the roads to two way traffic. As TfL points out, “The 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.”

As well as attempting to reduce tra...

Building backing on Plevna Crescent & Ermine Road?

Screen shot 2013-02-17 at 16.48.37

UPDATE: Haringey Council have refused this plan as the land is “Ecological Valuable ” and the development would be “out of character”. Well done to those who monitored this so closely, and thanks again to SoTo blog for sharing the news! Now the space has been saved, it begs the question could it be put to better use as wild green space for the community?

A potentially worrying development plan has been pointed out by our fellow South Tottenham bloggers over on SoTo: Big development planned for N15 railway embankments.

The Council is considering an application to build on the scrub land next to the railways sandwiched between Plevna Crescent and Ermine Road on the one side and Wick...

Sainsburys Seven Sisters

South Tottenham has a new “local” supermarket with the opening of a Sainsbury on West Green Road, near Seven Sisters station.

A bakery counter and ATM feature at the shop which is open from 7am until 11pm every day of the week. The address is 3-7 West Green Road, N15 5BX

Tottenham Seven Sisters Station Local store details

The new store follows on from last year’s Tesco Local opening near South Tottenham Station. With the “big” Tescos at Seven Sisters and the Sainsbury in Stamford Hill, it seems you’re never far from one or the other. Although with the departure of “Fair Deal”, maybe some will be hoping on the bus to Stoke Newington’s Whole Foods Market?

The shop was opened last week by local MP, David Lammy. He said: “I am pleased to see Sainsbury committing once again to our community...
