Several changes were made to Silver Street Station in the early 1980s. The two wooden covered staircases leading up to the platforms were replaced by two open air concrete staircases. The north-bound platform roof was removed and replaced by a simple brick shelter. A fire on the London-bound platforms in the 1990s damaged much of the original roof. A new modern structure was put in its place alongside the remaining undamged portion.
The Fore street tunnel section of the A406 North Circular Road was built beneath the station during the 1990s without any disruption to service. At this time a new ticket office was constructed on the east side of the station.
Silver Street Station is located on a long straight section of elevated track. Looking north, the platforms of Edmonton Green Station can be clearly made out whilst, looking south, trains leaving White Hart Lane are seen almost immediately as they leave the station.
London Bus route 34, 102, 144 and 444.
The station takes its name from the street so called which is recorded thus c.1630 and which possibly alludes to silversmiths living here at that date or in earlier times. The street used to include the part of Sterling Way which now runs past the station.
In late June 2013, as part of the 2013 Spending Review, Chancellor George Osborne gave the commitment for the devolution of the Seven Sisters and Chingford lines of West Anglian Suburban to TfL by the end of 2015. As such the station will then transfer to TfL control.
