Work has begun on the £3 million Hackney Central London Overground station revamp, a key milestone in plans for a cleaner, greener and more accessible town centre after the pandemic.

Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville was on-site last Friday (16 July) to mark the Department for Transport funded project getting under way, along with representatives from Arriva Rail London, Network Rail, Transport for London and designer and surveyor TTPP, which the Council is working in partnership with to deliver the improvements.

These include a new second entrance on Graham Road to ease congestion and provide quicker and more direct access to the town centre, new cycle parking spaces and more trees and greenery, and an additional staircase within the station to make the interchange between Hackney Central and Hackney Downs stations easier for customers.

The changes, scheduled for completion in early 2022, are made possible by Hackney Council providing land on Graham Road for the new entrance – one of the first actions in plans to deliver on priorities set by more than 4,000 local people as part of the large-scale engagement exercise the Hackney Central Conversation.
