New pedestrian tunnel to open

Posted: Friday 13th June 2014

A new 90m-long pedestrian tunnel with an LED art-wall will open at King’s Cross at the end of this month.

The futuristic looking tunnel has been designed by Allies & Morrison and will link St Pancras International and King’s Cross St Pancras Underground stations to the public spaces, restaurants, offices and homes at N1C.

The entrance will be in the north-east corner of One Pancras Square and the tunnel is broken into four distinct sections, each with its own conceptual idea: the canopy, the fin section, the floor, and one of the longest integrated art-walls in Europe.

During its opening months, the art-wall will have a dedicated light artwork on display called Pipette, which will evoke the colourful tapestry of King’s Cross through a tranquil yet animated design.
