The King’s Cross area is a busy part of Central London and a major transport interchange. Recent regeneration has seen it change from a seedy, deprived, run-down part of town into a popular location for new offices, apartments, bars and restaurants. There are the King’s Cross and St. Pancras railway stations at the surface, and the King’s Cross St. Pancras underground station beneath. St. Pancras railway station was recently refurbished and reopened as the terminus for the Eurostar trains. In addition, there are several major roads in the area crammed with buses and taxis, and the pavements are always jam-packed with pedestrian traffic. The underground station is frequently closed during rush hours due to overcrowding. In this context, it was considered desirable to upgrade the underground station to improve accessibility, increase capacity and to provide a station more fitting to a capital city in the 21st century.
