King's Cross station £550m renovation is unveiled

The new King’s Cross Western Concourse will open to the public next week. The Engineer paid a visit to the station in February to see how things were coming along and speak to those behind the project.

  • £550M for a new roof, who paid, probably you and me. Expensive business this public transport.

  • Fantastic! Thank goodness we still have the ability to put our resources into such projects. This sort of public celebration of art and science should be applauded. The sort of mean-spirited reaction of Anonymous is tragic, would they prefer we had another Euston Station?

  • Evidently according to Mr Anonymous nothing should be built unless he personally uses it. What a sad and selfish point of view.
    This development is a great piece of engineering that helps our public transport facilities to stand comparison with those in other countries.

  • £550M for a renovation is far too expensive! This money should be spent for people who needs a shelter.
    What is the governer thinking?

  • I am all for Britain leading the way in (structural) design and for meeting current and I assume anticipating future demand, but £550M is too high a price to pay
