New design of the London Euston station on the HS2 high-speed line has been unveiled.
HS2 has unveiled a concept for a redesigned London-Southstone station on the high-speed line. The concept, developed by a consortium consisting of Arup, WSP and Grimshaw Architects, differs from the one presented in 2015 with less complexity – the station with a reduced number of platforms from 11 to 10 can be built in one stage with minimal inconvenience to passengers and city residents.
The three-level station will have 10 underground platforms with a length of 450 m, ensuring the passage of up to 17 high-speed trains per hour. The 300 m long ground concourse is proposed to be open both for passengers and for through passage of citizens from the side of the new public spaces organized from the north and south directions. From the underground concourse it will be possible to exit to the existing Euston train station and Euston Square Metro station for trips on the Northern, Victoria, Circle, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan lines.
The roof of the modular structure will provide natural light for the concourse, the largest in the UK. On the first two levels of the station there will be retail and catering facilities. The north-south oriented concourse will eventually be crossed by east-west pedestrian and bicycle routes.
