Question

On a similar theme I have had representations from people about the Seven Sisters ticket office. Seven Sisters has two entrances and exits, one on Green Lane which is extremely busy and one on the Seven Sisters Road which interchanges with the overground. That is actually quite deserted. You have to go through a very narrow passage to get to it, and I have had concerns from people saying they do not feel safe there, especially at night. It would be welcomed if there was someone on the gates there. There was also a concern about the loss of the ticket office and someone staffing that, particularly because the Stansted Express is sometimes diverted from Tottenham Hale to Seven Sisters, so you have holidaymakers coming from the airport trying to change with suitcases and bags, coming down and then not able to buy ticket because the machines are often out of order.
