Silver Street, Edmonton Green, Bush Hill Park, Enfield Town, Southbury and Turkey Street will be re-branded and Transport for London has plans to significantly improve passenger facilities.
 
To complement the improvements, Enfield Council is keen improve the environment around the stations. It is proposed to improve Edmonton Green, Enfield Town and Southbury Road as part of the Cycle Enfield project while the open space around Silver Street station was transformed following an earlier successful funding bid to the Mayor.
 
The council has also submitted a new bid to the Mayor of London for funding in 2015/16 to allow detailed designs to be developed to transform the areas around both Bush Hill Park and Turkey Street stations.
 
If the bid is successful, and following consultation with the local community, a further £1.2m would then be sought to implement the scheme.
 
Early ideas seek to transform the pedestrian environment around both stations by upgrading the street space, improving paving, planting more trees and installing CCTV.
 
Cllr Chris Bond, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety said: ”The London Overground network is seeing increasing passenger numbers following investment in both the quality and frequency of services.
 
“Enfield Council is working hard to make sure that people can travel safely around the borough in pleasant conditons with a minimum of inconvenience and we are gradually transforming the environment around stations in the borough to improve their travel experience.

"We will continue to work with TfL to ensure that we play our part in improving the travelling experience of people visiting and passing through the borough.”
 
Enfield Council expects to hear in December whether its initial bid has been successful.
