Before Overground – Silver Street

A Disgraceful Station By An Important Hospital – Rating 1/10

These are pictures taken at Silver Street station.

It is not one of the better equipped stations, as it has no lifts, escalators, no open ticket office or cafe.

The stairs are also long and precipitous. They would be impossible for anybody with a baby in a buggy!

What makes this a lot worse, is that the station is close to the North Middlesex hospital. So if you have access problems and are visiting the hospital, steer clear of this station. You’d be better going to Edmonton Green and ordering a taxi.

All hospitals should have very easy step-free access from the nearest transport interchange.
