Before Overground – Cambridge Heath

A Pretty Run-Down Station! – Rating 2/10

Cambridge Heath station has little going for it. The only positive thing that can be said about it, is that is not as much of a dump as Bethnal Green station.

It was reasonably clean and unlike one platform at Bethnal Green, the station did have seats and shelters. But the stairs were even worse!

One point about this station is that it is served by a reasonable number of buses, as this map shows. So if you have difficulty walking, have a baby in a buggy or are carrying something heavy, it may be easier to take a bus to a station with better access.

As it is not the busiest of stations with only 300,000 passengers a year, will London Overground bother to improve the access?
