The Anonymous Widower

Underneath And Above The Arches

London Fields station has improved in some ways with Overgroundisation since I wrote Before Overground – London Fields in September 2014.

It just shows what you can do with an army of cleaners and painters. And a touch of Overground Orange!

But there is still the problem of step-free access to solve.

This Google Map shows how difficult this could be.

The site is cramped, with the platform and stairs for the Liverpool Street platform squeezed between the slow and fast lines.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Transport for London, put the addition of step-free access to this station at the very back of the queue.

Unless of course, they could persuade a developer to do something very imaginative and expensive, which they can market as having its own station and a large park with an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
