SWITCH OVER: Commuters arriving at St Pancras on Monday morning used four new platforms after a successful weekend track repositioning. Engineers can now build track for international Channel Tunnel Rail Link services into the historic part of the station - the magnicent William Barlow train shed. 'Opening the new platforms marks a signicant milestone for us, ' said managing director of Union Railways David Pointon. 'It was essential to have the platforms operational by 17 July to ensure the high-speed line is on schedule to open in autumn 2007.'
