New architect’s impressions showing how access to some of London Euston station’s busiest platforms will look after an £8 million investment have been released by Network Rail.
Improvements have been ongoing since Christmas 2020 to remove shops and widen the ramp allowing more space for rail travellers to move from the concourse to trains.
The new images show a clear route for passengers that will allow them to reach Platforms 8 to 11 without the bottlenecks caused by the addition of shops and the increase in passenger numbers since the station was last redeveloped in the 1960s.
Joe Hendry, station manager at London Euston, said: “Though we can’t make the station building bigger, this work will help us get passengers to where they need to be more effectively and efficiently.
“We’ve really missed our passengers during the pandemic, and we’ve done a lot to make the station better for them, including new escalators to the mezzanine and underground station. This is all part of our ongoing vision to improve Euston station for the future.”
Lawrence Bowman, customer experience director for London Northwestern Railway, added: “These welcome improvements will mean a more comfortable journey for our customers travelling to and from London Euston.
“With additional services and longer trains on the way as society unlocks, this scheme forms an important part of the railway’s efforts to help passengers travel with confidence.”
The major upgrade work to Platforms 8 to 11 is due to be finished by Autumn 2021.
