Euston Station – 8th May, 2020

I had walked to Euston station from Kings Cross along the back roads, which is a much better route than along the polluted Euston Road.

Note, that the train part of the station seemed to be functioning normally.

  1. I wandered the same area a few months ago, so it’s interesting seeing progress since then.

    The ‘EUSTNO2’ sign is appropriate. This is a vilely polluted and traffic-choked area, thoroughly human-unfriendly (thank you, post-war planners!). It’s precisely the sort of place that shortens people’s life expectancy and damages quality of life for residents and visitors.

    One glimmer of hope from Lockdown is that the relative peace and freedom from road-generated air and noise pollution are making people question the whole basis of the unsustainable carbon economy and particular the corrosive car culture that wrecks every corner of the UK. I live in hope – doubtless a naive one – that I may live to see a saner, cleaner, kinder world being brought about by the Dawning of the Age of Coronavirus.
