Kings Cross Square Opens

I went to Kings Cross Square this morning to see the opening.

In the end I had to leave before the actual opening.

I liked the new Kings Cross Square a lot and it is good addition to London. The biggest advantage to me of the square, is that when I’m say travelling from West London to my home in Dalston, it gives me a much better route home. Instead of walking for miles through the labyrinth at Kings Cross to get from the Piccadilly line to the Northern for The Angel and a 38 bus, I think now I’ll surface and walk across the square to a 30 or 73 bus, which will get me more or less to my home. If it’s fine, I can even sit in the sun away from the traffic, while I wait for the bus. If it’s raining the bus stops are much bigger than they were before the development started.

The other thing about the square is that is now a wonderful place to meet someone for a bit of business. Or perhaps to start a date or a visit to the theatre or the cinema!

So that seems to be Kings Cross station virtually finished, with Paddington and London Bridge stations, well on their way.

When do we get started on the terrible dump we call Euston? Or it is Eusless?

Kings Cross Square Is Nearly There

Kings Cross Square opens tomorrow and it’s nearly there.

The buses though are back and I came home on a 476 towards Islington, from in front of the station. The driver seemed pleased too, judging by the smile on his face, when I said it was good to have the stop back.

Kings Cross Square Is Nearly There

I took these pictures recently and it looks like the opening date of the 25th will be met.

Although there is nothing as a certainty in construction, where completion dates are concerned.
