Taylor Woodrow wins White Hart Lane station deal

Taylor Woodrow has been chosen to rebuild White Hart Lane station, which will serve fans travelling to Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium.

The contractor, which is part of Vinci, has been picked for the £18m contract to design and deliver a major revamp of the north London station.

White Hart Lane will serve 1.3m passengers a year, including thousands of Tottenham fans travelling to the new Spurs stadium when it opens next summer.

Improvements to the station will include a new ticket hall, an additional entrance, a new station forecourt and additional access routes to the ticket hall and platform.

The redevelopment is a key part of regeneration plans around the football stadium, which also include a museum, a hotel and 585 homes.

A wider regeneration of the area will see 2,000 homes built as part of the High Road West masterplan, and a further 3,000 homes in the overall north Tottenham area.

Work on the station is expected to start on site in autumn 2017, with the improvements complete in spring 2019.

The station will continue to operate throughout the majority of the improvement works.

TfL director for London rail Jon Fox said: “White Hart Lane station is set for a radical transformation to make life easier and more comfortable for customers.

“The station will see lifts installed for the first time, making it more accessible for everyone, and the new entrance will provide better connections with the local area, supporting the new homes and jobs being created in Tottenham.”

CN reported last month that elements of the £20m roof for Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium could be made offsite.
