Updated Sunday 3pm - travel notice ahead of Aston Villa FA Cup tie

Posted on 8 January 2017  - 15:00

All supporters intending to travel to this match via public transport should be aware that due to industrial action being taken by members of the RMT and TSSA unions on London Underground services, post-match services will be severely disrupted.

UPDATE - SUNDAY, 3pm

London Underground has advised us that Seven Sisters is expected to remain open later than initially advertised with Victoria Line services running until 22:00-23:00.

This industrial action is likely to affect the whole of the underground network and London Underground is not expecting to run any services within the central zones and only a skeleton service outside of these areas. https://tfl.gov.uk/campaign/tube-strike.

In addition, due to planned Network Rail engineering works taking place in the Cheshunt area, there will be no Abellio Greater Anglia services at Northumberland Park station. Abellio Greater Anglia and Arriva Rail London did request for these works to be suspended once the FA Cup draw was confirmed but this was declined by Network Rail.

However we have been advised that two trains per hour will run between London Liverpool Street and Waltham Cross and will call at Tottenham Hale.

The Club has been in discussions with all transport providers to seek as many options for fans as possible. London Overground will be running an enhanced service of six trains per hour to White Hart Lane station on the London Liverpool Street to Enfield Town route only. Supporters wishing to travel to Cheshunt and stations beyond are advised to utilise local bus services from Edmonton Green and then rail replacement bus services from Waltham Cross.

Please be aware that due to these disruptions, supporters who intend to use White Hart Lane station can expect some significantly extended queuing times of up to 90 minutes. There will be additional staff and British Transport Police present at the station to assist with managing these queues. We would ask supporters to please consider using alternative options (including buses or walking to Tottenham Hale station if you are able) to reach your destination. For those supporters who will use White Hart Lane station, please be patient and work with the staff to ensure that everyone reaches the trains safely and as quickly as possible.

Local bus routes 149, 259, 349 & W3 all run adjacent to the stadium at 5-7 minute intervals and can assist you in reaching your final destination or alternative rail stations. Due to road closures in place for approximately 30 minutes post-match to assist pedestrian flow, the bus routes divert immediately post-match, with the nearest bus stops at the junction of the High Road & White Hart Lane and also at the junction of the High Road and Bruce Grove.

We would advise all supporters to check travel updates via the Transport for London route planner and website here - https://tfl.gov.uk/tube-dlr-overground/status/ - and updates via @SpursOfficial before commencing your journey.
