Construction logistics planning
Tottenham Hale will undergo an unprecedented amount of development activity over the next decade. Construction is currently underway on a number of sites, with more to come.
A carefully planned and coordinated approach needs to be taken to the logistics management of this undertaking in order to mitigate the associated impacts of construction work to the infrastructure, the local community and the local environment. To this end, a Construction Logistics Plan (CLP) has been developed for the Tottenham Area which sets the framework for developers and construction contractors undertaking project site work in the area.
Specifically, the CLP will help to:
- Minimise the impact of construction works traffic on the local environment while ensuring the safety of vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists throughout the duration of the works
- Decrease the disruption of the urban transport system from construction works traffic
- Increase the efficiency of area construction works and construction traffic
A CLP Forum involving all the main construction contractors, developers and Haringey Council was set up in October 2018 with clear Terms of Reference to support the monitoring and delivery of the CLP. Specifically, the Forum enables:
- The exchange all relevant information and data from individual sites, enabling works, utilities, developments and projects within Tottenham Hale and also wider developments within Haringey and neighbouring Boroughs
- The recognition and mitigation of all safety and local environmental concerns with regard to works and site access
- Collaborative working to address any issues or challenges arising as a result of the cumulative impact of construction activity in Tottenham Hale

Tottenham Hale infrastructure and bus station works 2019
From January 2019, VolkerFitzpatrick will be carrying out improvements to the existing road network and bus station in Tottenham Hale.
Changes to the local road network will include:
- Widening of the existing Hale Road / Watermead Way route to provide two eastbound traffic lanes
- A new signalised junction created at the northern end of the bus station with Watermead Way and linked with a new signalised junction with Station Road / Ashley Road
- Four new pedestrian crossings
- Realignment of Station Road and introduction of a one way system (south to north)
- Additional bus stand space on Hale Road and Watermead Way
The existing Tottenham Hale bus station will also be improved by:
- Restructuring the existing bus station alignment which will enable buses to enter and exit on both the north and south ends of the bus station, reducing the overall journey time for the majority of the buses servicing Tottenham Hale
- Introducing a new entrance and signalised junction to the north of the bus station by Watermead Way
- Reducing the overall footprint of the bus station which provides increased space for the new public realm
Alongside the works to the highway and the bus station, VolkerFitzpatrick will also be carrying out works to utilities and services in the Tottenham Hale area.
The majority of the works are currently programmed to complete in 2020.
