Urgent repairs to Harringay station’s footbridge gets underway

Network Rail says urgent repairs to Harringay station’s footbridge have got underway.

The bridge, which connects passengers to platform 2, has been closed since Sunday to keep passengers and staff safe until urgent repairs can be made.  

Services travelling towards Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage are currently unable to call at the station. Once engineers have completed sufficient strengthening work, we will be able to reopen to platform 2 and services will be able to call there once more.

In the meantime, passengers travelling to Harringay from Central London should travel to Hornsey and catch a London-bound service back to Harringay. 

Passengers looking to travel towards Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage from Harringay should instead board a train to Finsbury Park and change there for a service back towards Welwyn Garden City or Stevenage. 

Harringay station will be closed overnight (on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 January) between 10pm and 6am whilst the work takes place. 

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.”
