Railtrack Euston in line for £150m revamp

RAILTRACK has unveiled massive regeneration plans for Lon-don's Euston station.

A feasibility study is under way to look at ways of remodelling the station to cope with projected

increases in passenger numbers.

A precise value has not been placed on the project, but it is expected to be greater than the £150 million Railtrack is proposing for London's King's Cross station.

The Euston feasibility study should be completed by the spring and construction work could start in 1999. There is no completion date for the job. But Railtrack hopes the scheme could tie in with the upgrade of the West Coast mainline, which is due to be finished in 2002.

Railtrack has already produced preparatory plans to improve the main concourse at Euston and upgrade the existing facilities and shops, but more precise plans will result from the feasibility study.

Railtrack has also revealed a £5 million project to redevelop Hawley Wharf in Camden, north London. The firm is negotiating with British Waterways, its partner on the scheme, to decide on the procurement process.

Work is set to start on site towards the middle of next year with a 12-month design and construction phase.

Proposals for the project include two new buildings earmarked for shops and offices.
