It is urgent to press on with a redevelopment of Euston station but we do not feel the government’s plans go far enough.
The challenge of developing Euston station presents a great opportunity. We believe that any development at Euston should maximise the opportunities for the benefit of business and local residents alike.
We have been promoting a comprehensive redevelopment of Euston station for many years. Our first Vision Masterplan for the Euston area was published in 2008. Our proposals for Euston have evolved to keep pace with UK Government’s revised proposals for the station, but our underlying message remains the same:
We must maximise the opportunities at Euston to create a station that transcends its basic transport functions and emerges as a destination in its own right, capable of reinforcing and supporting the surrounding community.
Our first Vision Masterplan in 2008
Our 2008 Vision Masterplan proposed a comprehensive development of the station site:
- A vibrant landmark station visible from Euston Road
- Increased passenger capacity
- Easy connections between transport modes and improved cycle routes
- Active street frontages and permeability, ensuring the station fits within its neighbourhood
- Mixed use development catering for office workers, travellers and local residents
- A new public space – Euston Roof Gardens
- Improved public realm, based on principles of good urban design.
Only a comprehensive development of the station site will realise the commerical potential of the station, attracting private investment, which will in turn contribute to the funding of the railway and the transformation of this area of London.
