A sad day approaches…

Eastern entrance closesAs the scaffolding on the eastern side of King’s Cross Station is taken down, the day the north eastern exit closes comes ever closer.

It won’t be too long now… The Eastern Range is looking wonderful – new fittings, paintwork and spruced up brickwork revealing the warm golden glow of London stock bricks. Now we need to really press all the powers that be – the Government, Transport for London and the Greater London Assembly, Network Rail, LB Camden and LB Islington to get together to find the funds to replace our long-lost bridge at the junction of York Way and Wharfdale Road to replace the current entrance there. LB Islington are doing all they can (see Tribune article below), now what about everyone else?  Closure notice eastern entrance-500wi
Contact us if you can give any time, experience or expertise to the campaign to open up King’s Cross Station.

Campaign to meet in March

With spring on the horizon, local campaigners are getting set to plan out the strategy to create a walking and cycling route from the Angel to Marylebone, all away from the dangerously high emission zone of the A501 ring road. To do this, we need to get the powers that be to build a bridge across the tracks at the rear of King’s Cross Station.

Walking/cycling route Angel to Marylebone

If you have any time, expertise or experience you can give to the campaign, do contact us. If you can make our meeting early evening 3rd March all the better (contact us for details). If we don’t see you there, hope to hear from you soon!
