Harringay bridge, via Network Rail

Further Harringay disruptions as footbridge repairs continue

A project to secure the stability and structural integrity of Harringay station’s footbridge began last night, seeing urgent repair works that will carry over throughout today.

This bridge is a vital connecting point at the station, cutting through the infrastructural hustle and bustle, providing passengers a safe route as they traverse to platform 2. To accommodate for these repair works, the bridge itself has been closed since Sunday, keeping passengers and station staff safe throughout the duration of the ongoing repair works.

Due to the works, services travelling towards Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage are currently unable to call at the station, spelling unavoidable passenger disruption which should be accounted for in journeys. Upon the successful culmination of these strengthening works, platform 2 will be reopened, allowing passenger services to call there again.

Whilst the closure is still in place, passengers travelling to Harringay from Central London should travel to Hornsey and catch a London-bound service back to Harringay. Passengers travelling towards Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage from Harringay can look to board trains to Finsbury Park and change there.

Paul Rutter, East Coast Route Director for Network Rail, said:

“We’re really sorry for the disruption which this will cause over the coming days. Our teams are working to carry out these repairs as quickly as possible, so that trains can once more call at Platform 2.

“Passengers planning to travel should check their journey via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator before setting off and allow some extra time.”

For facilitation of the repairs, Harringay station will be closed tonight from 10pm and 6am whilst the works are taking place.
