The increased numbers of people visiting the stadium and updated safety and security requirements mean some roads closest to the stadium will be closed on major event days. General traffic will not be able to access the High Road between White Hart Lane and Lordship Lane/Lansdowne Road from up to three hours, but more likely two hours, before kick-off and one hour afterwards. Worcester Avenue, Whitehall Street (from the High Road to Love Lane), Love Lane and Park Lane will also be subject to closures.
- Visit the Tottenham Hotspur website (external link) for information about which roads will be closed before, during and after a match and how this may affect you
A number of resident parking bays around the stadium will be suspended on match and event days to allow for security arrangements and spectator access or queueing. These suspensions will last all day, so please check before you park. Advanced notices will be put in place seven days before each match or event to inform you when suspensions are in effect.
Residents may use alternative parking nearby, but if you leave your car parked in these suspended spaces, it may be relocated to a neighbouring street by a removal vehicle.
If you believe your car may have been removed or towed away you can contact:
- the London-wide TRACE service:

The High Road will be closed to buses and general traffic on event days from two hours before the start time, during, and up to one hour after the event finishes, and it will be necessary to run some bus diversions.
The routes affected include: 149, 259, 279 and 349. Please see the TfL website (external link) to plan your journey and to check before you travel.
Visit the Tottenham Hotspur website (external link) for more information (including maps) on the bus diversions.
Overground and Underground
Before and after matches at the stadium, TfL and Tottenham Hotspur's will implement specific event day operation plans for Seven Sisters, Tottenham Hale, Northumberland Park and White Hart Lane stations. This means temporary barriers being erected outside stations near the end of a game to manage queues and, in some cases, restrict access.
It is the post-match period when queues at our local stations will be at their longest and there will be one queue for all.
We would recommend that you check before you travel and avoid the busy post-match period.
Visit the Tottenham Hotspur website (external link) for more information.
For the remaining 2018-2019 home games we know there is going to be increased demand on the area, with thousands attending the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. We want to assure residents that both Haringey Council and Tottenham Hotspur will be monitoring the impact and running clean-up operations in the area.
As with any change of this scale, we expect there will be a learning period, and we will be using this to prepare for next season too. We’ll be doing everything we can to minimise the impact.
If you do notice a big build-up of rubbish around the stadium, please send photos to Veolia at firstname.lastname@example.org stating the full location details so that we can get a complete picture.
