Hackney Central railway station is a
railwaystation on the North London Linein an area of the London Borough of Hackneyknown as Hackney Centralin 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 Overgroundand 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.
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 Undergroundfor 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).
