Could Enfield Lock Station Have A Bay Platform?

In West Anglia Route Improvement – Modern Railways March 2017, I mentioned that Crossrail 2 might like to have turnback platform at Enfield Lock station.

As this morning, I turned back myself at Enfield Lock station, as it’s the Freedom Pass limit, I took these pictures.

This Google Map shows the middle of the station.

If you look at the West side of the station by the Down line, you’ll notice the house, which from the pictures could be a candidate for demolition.

So I do think, it might be possible to squeeze an extra platform, by the Down Line.

This Google Map shows the Southern end of the platforms.

The space available would certainly be enough for an extra platform, but will there be enough for two fast lines between the current Up Line and the houses?

I suspect that there is, if the current lines could be moved slightly to the West.

But as at Tottenham  Hale and Brimsdown, fitting the two fast lines through \Enfield Lock, is going to need a cunning plan.
