New public square opens August 2013
At King's Cross, we've harmoniously fused the latest technology and design to a beautiful Victorian structure to create a transport hub that is ready to accommodate the unprecedented numbers taking to the railways.
The bright, spacious new concourse - the largest single-span structure in Europe - has food and retail outlets to rival those at St Pancras next door. It opened in March 2012, in time to welcome the world for the Olympics.
The refurbishment of the main train sheds is nearly complete and the final phase of the project, ending late 2013, will see the canopy stripped away and a new public square created.
