The Story So Far

Since work began in Summer 2019, significant progress has already been achieved, with much of the work taking place behind the scenes without causing disruption.

For safety reasons, some of the major works can only be carried out when trains are not running, and there have been a number of weekend closures of the station to enable the work to continue.  This has enabled signals and masts that carry the overhead wires to be replaced, control of the railway moved from the old King’s Cross signal box to the new Rail Operating Centre in York and essential preparation work for later stages of the Upgrade.
