Highams Park railway station
Highams Park railway station is in Highams Park which is in the London Borough of Waltham Forest in north east London. It is in Travelcard Zone 4, and the station and all trains are operated by Greater Anglia.
The station was originally named Hale End upon opening in 1873, and then in 1894 Highams Park and Hale End. The present station, to the design of Neville Ashbee, was inaugurated in 1900.
The typical off-peak and on-peak service is 4 trains per hour in both directions throughout most of the day, including Sundays. However, there is a 30 minute gap between trains early mornings and late Sunday evenings.
A level crossing connecting Larkshall Road with Hale End Road is situated just to the south of the station. The crossing is worked by the signal box at Liverpool Street Station. There are three ways to cross the line; the footbridge in the station, the subway at the south end of the station which links to the level crossing, and the level crossing itself.
No bus route starts or ends in Highams Park although three main bus routes and one school bus route pass through the area they are:
- 212 - Walthamstow Central to Chingford Station
- 275 - St James Street railway station to Barkingside Tesco
- 675 School Bus - Walthamstow Central to Woodford (Woodbridge High School)
- W16 - Leytonstone tube station to Chingford Mount
In late June 2013, as part of the 2013 Spending Review, Chancellor George Osborne gave the commitment for the devolution of the Seven Sisters and Chingford lines of West Anglian Suburban to TfL by the end of 2015. As such the station will then transfer to TfL control.
