Lea Bridge Station, between Tottenham Hale and Stratford, is to reopen.
The announcement was made today by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.
The station will consist of two platforms, a new footbridge and lifts, waiting shelters and cycle storage.
The station, on the north side of Lea Bridge Road and closed since 1985, will be handy for those starting or leaving the Lea Valley Walk at Lea Bridge.
The reopening is an initiative of Waltham Forest Council and it is the minister’s expectation that work should begin without too much delay.
