King’s Cross is the best connected location in Europe

The King’s Cross St Pancras transport hub links six London Underground lines with two national mainline train stations and international high speed rail. London’s five international airports are within an hour. And Euston Station – with service to Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham – is a five minute walk.

Add 14 bus lines and a planned 800 space bike interchange, and you have a location that’s unrivalled for connections – locally, nationally and internationally.

£2.5 billion - the figure spent on transport infrastructure at King's Cross in the last ten years

And it shows. St Pancras International is the magnificent new home of Eurostar. The beautiful new concourse at King’s Cross Station is now open. And more improvements are on the way.

Public Access Routes

One of the aims of the masterplan is to open up the site for public access after a long history of enclosure as Railway Lands.
The construction process has necessarily restricted access to active building sites and haul roads for safety reasons.

However as sites are completed there is the opportunity to open up routes to the public.
This process was started with the opening of King's Boulevard in 2011 and this now forms part of a north/south route through the site joining York Way with the mainline railway stations.
In addition the steps by Granary Square supplement the existing access to the Regent’s Canal towpath at Maiden Lane bridge on York Way.

As further elements of the public realm (including 2 new bridges across the Regent’s Canal) are completed the network will be extended and publicised on-line, on maps and on other forms of way finding.
