West Anglia Route Improvement – Enfield Lock Station – 22nd February 2017

I took these pictures at Enfield Lock station.

This Google Map shows a closeup of the station.

Note.

  • The level crossing.
  • The Google Map shows an underpass so that pedestrians and cyclists can bypass the level crossing.
  • The truly dreadful footbridge.
  • The tired station facilities.
  • Will the houses behind the London-bound platform like having 20 tph, thundering past their back gardens.

There isn’t much space to the West of the line, but with a bit of selective demolition and moving of line-side equipment, I suspect that two extra tracks could be squeezed through.

In a related post I’ve proposed a Level Crossing Replacement Station.

This might be a way of doing the following.

  • Removing the level crossing.
  • Building a new modern station.
  • Providing easy level access across the railway at all times for pedestrians, cyclists and those in wheelchairs.

The good people of Enfield would get a modern station and the railways would get rid of a troublesome level crossing.
