Hackney Central railway station


Hackney Central railway station

Hackney Central railway station is a railway station on the North London Line in an area of the London Borough of Hackney known as Hackney Central in East London.

It is between Dalston Kingsland (to the west) and Homerton (to the east). It is in Travelcard Zone 2. The service is roughly every fifteen minutes westbound to Richmond, and every fifteen minutes eastbound to Stratford. Since November 2007 management has transferred to TfL's London Overground and service frequencies are set to double to 8 trains per hour by 2010 with 24 new tube style trains by 2008. Station deep cleaning and renovations are due in spring 2008.

The station is a short walk from Hackney Downs, on the National Express East Angliaroute from London Liverpool Street. The former station building has been reused as a bar, now closed.

Future

Hackney Central is a proposed stop on the Chelsea-Hackney Line, also known as Crossrail 2. It would be between Dalston Junction and Homerton. The platforms would be underground, with a connection to the existing surface station. It would connect the station and the borough to the London Underground for the first time ever, although the East London line was supposed to bring the Underground to Hackney but now it is part of the National Rail Network (albeit branded as London Overground).
