Lea Bridge Station now open

Lea Bridge Station has reopened after a 31 year closure.

Transport Minister Claire Perry MP and Waltham Forest Council leader Chris Robbins arrived by train on Monday morning to declare the station open.

The station is about half a mile east of Lea Bridge and slightly nearer than Clapton Station to the west.

Clapton Station trains run into Liverpool Street Station whilst Lea Bridge Station trains run into Stratford Station. Both have trains running north to Tottenham Hale and Broxbourne.

To reach Lea Bridge Station from the Lea Valley Walk cross Lea Bridge, next to The Princess of Wales, and walk along Lea Bridge Road.

The first train stopped on Sunday evening prior to the official opening.
