Plans to rebuild Euston station for the arrival of High Speed 2 (HS2) have this week been dramatically scaled back.
Project promoter HS2 Ltd has scrapped plans to completely rebuild of Euston Station including all platforms. Further design and engineering work has concluded improvements can be made on time and without the disruption that such work would entail.
“In response to community concerns about the potential disruption caused by the redevelopment of Euston Station, and following more work done by our engineers to find the best way to deliver best value for taxpayers, we have identified an option that delivers great opportunities for the area while minimising the potential effects on local communities in Camden and on passengers,” said HS2 chief executive Alison Munro.
The full extent of the Euston work will be covered in detail in next week’s NCE.
