Before the match, Victoria line trains are expected to be busy with commuters travelling at the same time. Fans arriving at Seven Sisters are advised, if possible, to walk to the stadium and not attempt to interchange onto the London Overground to White Hart Lane, which will be diverted as normal. Eight northbound trains an hour will be stopping at Northumberland Park.
After the match, eight trains an hour will run to Liverpool Street via Northumberland Park with four an hour running from White Hart Lane.
Supporters are recommended to use Northumberland Park for quicker and easier travel, including four trains per hour to Stratford.
The new pedestrian crossing of Watermead Road, outside Tottenham Hale station, is now fully operational. Once the call button is pushed the ‘Green Man’ will appear in only 45 seconds. Pedestrians are asked to be patient and not take unnecessary risks when crossing this busy and often fast-moving road.
The construction works at Tottenham Hale will continue for the rest of the season, but train services are still operational. Please follow the advice offered by stewards. Tottenham Hale station also has new accessible facilities, with a link bridge and lifts creating a wheelchair accessible option for fans travelling to and from central London.
We advise any fans travelling on the Victoria line after the match to embark at Tottenham Hale – this is a shorter walk than Seven Sisters.
Fans intending to travel through the new White Hart Lane station should note that the station is now fully accessible. Please bear with us as we allow the new station operations to bed in. Although the station has been upgraded, the new rolling stock has not yet been introduced and train capacity remains the same.
The 149 service has now joined the 259, 279 and 349 services on the shorter eastern diversion route around the High Road matchday closure. This should improve the availability of services, particularly to Seven Sisters post-match.
