Question

Your answer to my question 2771/2011 was very general. There is a need for a new Victoria line station at Northumberland Park and a footbridge to facilitate transport to the ground. Will you be building these and if so, on what timescale?

There is currently no provision in the TfL Business Plan for such an expensive project. As you will be aware, I am determined to see a major and long-lasting transformation of Tottenham. Following the August riots, the Government and I have announced a £20 million funding pot and the creation of two taskforces to focus specifically on regeneration in Tottenham and Croydon, which had already been identified as priority zones for regeneration. The allocation of this funding is in active discussion with the relevant local councils. These discussions include potential transport measures.
