Plans For Second Entrance At Hackney Central Station Move Ahead

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the Hackney Citizen.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Plans to alleviate overcrowding at Hackney Central station are now moving ahead, with a decision by the Town Hall to provide a second entrance on council-owned land on Graham Road.

The article also makes the following points.

  • Things should be moving on the new entrance on the North side of the station.
  • Usage of the Overground went up 160 percent between 2007 and 2013,
  • Usage is expected to rise 40 % in the next ten years.
  • The original 1980s building was designed with a twenty year life.

Read the whole article, as it looks like the politics of the new entrance is all very complicated, but badly needed. Especially, by this traveller!

  1. 10 year gilts are yielding only .6 which is hard to believe. Time to issue debt and fix these issues.
