Harringay Green Lanes railway station is a railway station in Harringaymarker, North Londonmarker. It is on the Gospel Oak to Barking line between Crouch Hillmarker and South Tottenhammarker.

Service

Trains run every 30 minutes in each direction, towards either Gospel Oakmarker or Barkingmarker, at peak hours this service increases to trains every 20 minutes. All trains from the station are operated by London Overground but the line and station tracks are used for some freight services.

History

It was opened 1 June 1880 as plain Green Lanes, but was renamed a number of times:

There were originally wooden platform buildings which were replaced by brick and concrete structures in the 1950s. The original ticket office at street level survived and in recent times was a café. To cope with the huge number of passengers visiting Harringay Stadium and Arenamarker, both right next to the station, very long platforms were provided, but these were shortened in late 2003 due to subsidence. Just west of the station was the goods yard; this closed on 3 February 1964, and is now Railway Fields nature reserve.

Station infrastructure

As of summer 2008, the station has been repainted and re-signed in London Overground colours, with the green-painted staircase railings (for example) of the former Silverlink franchise giving way to Overground orange.

The station has no direct interchange to a tube station, despite the fact that the Piccadilly Line runs directly beneath it and the distance between the two stations at either end of this section, Turnpike Lane and Manor House, is particularly long for the line. Manor House tube stationmarker is about away.Transfer on a single ticket is allowed between Harringay Green Lanes and nearby Harringaymarker.

It has been proposed that a Piccadilly Line station be built at the site to provide an interchange in what is a busy commercial area, while nearby Manor House tube stationmarker would be converted to a Victoria Line station to provide a connection to Seven Sisters.
