Euston Station Access ramps P8-11
Improvements to the station to overcome the ‘Euston Stampede’ by once again giving London Euston station clear passenger flows, which were a key feature of the redevelopment of the station in the 1960s.

Sweco was the lead designer for this multi-disciplinary design scheme for our client, Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd. Improvements to the station started at Christmas last year with a vision to return Euston to having clear passenger flows which were key feature of the redevelopment of the station in the 1960s.
Passenger access has been improved to four of London Euston station’s busiest platforms as part of a multi-million-pound improvement programme. The previous layout of the ramp to platforms 8-11 acted as a bottleneck, resulting in an uncomfortable experience for passengers.
A £11.7m investment has now seen the access widened allowing more space for passengers to move from the concourse to their train. The work coincided with other Euston station upgrades as part of the HS2 ONW programme portfolio, including new information screens and improvements to the announcement system.

We really care about our passengers and we’ve listened to what they have to say using the feedback we’ve received through Twitter and our national helpline. Passengers now have much better access to platforms 8-11 which will reduce what passengers had coined the ‘Euston Stampede’.
