As Euston mainline station is to be closed over Easter due to works on the railway north of London, they’re also going to make some changes to the station itself as well.

The platform ramps will be widened, retail units will be removed, and staircases will be updated to ensure customers can get between trains and the concourse quickly and safely.

A new outside entrance for the London Underground is also being built. The external entrance to the tube is needed in part to improve access, but also so that the new entrance can be used by the Night Tube without needing to go into the main station building.

Euston will be closed over the Easter weekend (19-22 April) and the early May bank holiday weekend (4-6 May) with no trains in or out of the main line station on those days.

Over the closures, the Paperchase and Body Shop retail units will be removed to improve access to the platforms. They will also demolish the former external retail units on the piazza and continue work on new external London Underground entrance.

They’re also resurfacing ramps at platforms 8-11, which are in a fairly dire state at the moment.

The loos will also see the old turnstiles removed, as the toilets are now free to use, so the turnstiles are obsolete.

    Hope the Signal Box pub inside station is unchanged

    those external retail units were really busy – sometimes the queue in Pret was so long that i had to give up !

    they will be missed

    A brilliant move to put the entrance only accessible from outside. The vast majority of passengers arriving at Euston go straight to the tube. Now we all have to get wet unless we want to tramp down the stairs by the ticket office.

    This is not progress!

    So in 2019 we are disconnecting integrated transport hubs!!
    It’s going to be fun in the rain
    It makes journeys more painful
    Typical network rail – It’s a cheap plywood solution boarding up th entrance and doing the cheapest possible bodge fix

    This morning it was pouring with rain, so having arrived dry on the train into Euston, we all got wet going into the underground via the new external entrance. Clever design for the 21st Century!
