Greater Anglia is advising boxing fans planning to see Tyson Fury v Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Saturday 3 December to make alternative travel plans.

Due to planned engineering work by Network Rail, Greater Anglia can only operate a very limited train service on its West Anglia route this weekend.

Customers are strongly advised to walk to the stadium from Tottenham Hale station, which is around 15-20 minutes away. There is also a regular bus service between Tottenham High Road and the stadium.

The engineering work will take place between London Liverpool Street and Cheshunt via Seven Sisters all weekend, closing some lines. As a result, services that run between London Liverpool Street and Cheshunt will be diverted via Tottenham Hale and Stratford.

Greater Anglia will be operating around half of its usual services and they are likely to very busy.

Extra staff will be on hand at stations to help people with their journeys. There will be a queuing system outside Tottenham Hale and Northumberland Park so customers should allow extra time.

Customers are also reminded that there are no London Overground services between London Liverpool Street and Chingford/Enfield Town/Cheshunt on Saturday 3 December, however there will be a night tube on the Victoria Line.

Pete Mellar, Greater Anglia Area Customer Service Manager, said: “We are unable to run our usual number of services this Saturday due to Network Rail carrying out engineering work.

“Customers should make alternative travel plans if they can. We are running a very limited service and we expect trains leaving Liverpool Street to be full.

“We have previously been able to support large-scale local events, but on this occasion, we are very sorry it’s not possible.

“Engineering works are planned several months and sometimes even years in advance, and these works can’t be moved. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.”
