£500,000 upgrade for electrics supplying Tottenham Hale

From Press releases - 4 July 2016 12:00 AM

Vital work to upgrade the ‘transformer room’ which powers Tottenham Hale Tube station on the Victoria line starts this month.

UK Power Networks Services was awarded the contract by Transport for London (TfL) after successfully completing a competitive tendering exercise to upgrade the room which houses vital high voltage electricity equipment,  in north London.

The work involves designing, suppling and installing new high and low voltage switchgear and transformers, thereby minimising any potential operational risk to the system. The project is expected to last six months at a cost of around £500,000.

Peter Mulligan is managing the project for UK Power Networks. He said: “The transformer room provides critical supplies to Tottenham Hale Station, so it is very important we carefully co-ordinate the works with London Underground.”

Lorraine Humphrey, Senior Project Manager at London Underground, said: “Tottenham Hale is a busy station on our network, particularly on match days, but still relies on decades-old infrastructure. Upgrading the transformer room which powers the site will improve reliability for our customers and ensure we have sufficient power to cope with the planned station upgrade and other future enhancements. We will work closely with UK Power Networks to ensure the works are carried out smoothly.”
