Tottenham v Villa: Important travel information

Information from Tottenham re: FA Cup clash on Sunday…

All supporters intending to travel to this match via public transport should note that due to industrial action being taken by members of the RMT and TSSA unions, London Underground have advised us that they will not be able to run a Victoria Line service after 6pm. 

This industrial action is likely to affect the whole of the underground network and London Underground are not expecting to run any services within the central zones and only a skeleton service outside of these areas. 

In addition, due to planned Network Rail engineering works taking place in the Cheshunt area, there will be no Abellio Greater Anglia services running through Northumberland Park or Tottenham Hale. 

Abellio Greater Anglia and Arriva Rail London did request for these works to be suspended once the FA Cup draw was confirmed but this was declined by Network Rail.  

The club has been in discussions with all transport providers to seek as many options for fans as possible. London Overground will be running an enhanced service of six trains per hour to White Hart Lane station on the London Liverpool Street to Enfield Town route only. 

Supporters wishing to travel to Cheshunt and stations beyond are advised to utilise local bus services from Edmonton Green and then rail replacement bus services from Waltham Cross. 

Supporters are advised that due to these disruptions, extended queuing times are likely at White Hart Lane station after the game and would appreciate your patience at this time. 

Additional staff and British Transport Police will be present at the station to assist with managing these queues.

Please also consider using local bus routes (149, 259, 349 & W3 all run adjacent to the stadium at 5-7 minute intervals) to reach your final destination. 

Due to road closures in place for approximately 30 minutes post-match to assist pedestrian flow, the bus routes divert immediately post-match, with the nearest bus stops at the junction of the High Road & White Hart Lane and also at the junction of the High Road and Bruce Grove. 

We would advise all supporters to check TRAVEL UPDATES via the Transport for London route planner.
