Plans for the new Euston station have been unveiled as it prepares for the arrival of the new High Speed 2 (HS2) trains in 2026.
The new plans involve splitting the work to modify the station into two phases. The Hybrid Bill in 2013 planned for the 11 new platforms required for the HS2 scheme to be built in one go.
Phase one involved building six new platformst to the west, outside of the footprint of the existing station by 2026. Five more platforms will then be built adjacent to these inside the existing building footprint by 2033 as part of a second phase of work. Only in the second phase will the layout of the existing building be modified with the original 18 tracks that exist today reduced to 13.
