Newly redeveloped Hackney Wick station opened, 20 May 2018
Passengers at Hackney Wick can now get to their trains more quickly and more easily than before with the station’s new subway, lifts, stairs and overall improved layout.
The station’s new facilities and layout doesn’t just provide benefits to passengers, but also to the local economy and community, supporting the existing local businesses to grow further and helping to attract new businesses and housing developers to the area. Wider development around the station is being carried out by the LLDC, which includes a mix of residential and commercial units and providing a thoroughfare from the northern entrance of the station subway to connect it directly to Wallis Road.
The new subway running north to south beneath the existing railway line has replaced the pre-existing footbridge and will eventually open up new pedestrian and cycle links between Wallis Road and White Post Lane, better connecting the boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets. The subway features coloured concrete walls imprinted with chemical symbols to signify the area’s industrial heritage and an illuminated glass wall to reflect the local waterways.
Hackney Wick is managed by train operator Arriva Rail London which runs TfL’s London Overground concession. Please visit TfL’s webpage for further passenger service information.
