John McAslan + Partners gets go-ahead for King’s Cross Station development.
UK Transport Minister Tony McNulty has given the go-ahead for John McAslan + Partners major project for the redevelopment of London’s Grade I listed King’s Cross Station. This complex multi-phased project focuses on improving passenger facilities, rationalising operational activities and optimising commercial opportunities at the station. Major remodelling at King’s Cross will optimise TOC facilities, incorporate improved links with LUL, rationalise taxi and bus connections, provide a new western concourse, and incorporate substantial restoration and refurbishment within the existing train shed, while forming enhanced retail facilities. The project will also serve to improve interchange facilities with St Pancras Station, the proposed location for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Thameslink services and is scheduled for completion by 2011.
