West Anglia Route Improvement – Cheshunt Station – 26th February 2017

I took these pictures at Cheshunt station.

This Google Map shows the layout of the station.

The station is very much a gateway to the Lea Valley Country Park and it could be difficult to find a by-pass for the level crossing.

I think putting two extra tracks through the station could be difficult.

  • ,The space is a bit narrow.
  • The level crossing will probably have to stay.
  • A lot of express trains stop, so that passengers can change to the London Overground.

Perhaps the solution is to do something like the following.

  • Extend the London Overground service to Broxbourne station, where there is space for extra platforms.
  • Stop fast services calling at Cheshunt station.
  • Move the two slow tracks Westward a bit, to create space for the two new lines on the Eastern side.

I also think, that extending the Overground to Broxbourne would make Broxbourne station an even better interchange.
