New HS2 Euston Station Designs Revealed

New HS2 Euston Station Designs Revealed
17 March 2022
 

An updated design for the new high-speed railway station at London Euston has been published.

The station hall, 20 per cent larger than Trafalgar Square, will become the largest station concourse in the UK.  There will also be 50,000 high-speed train seats over the three hour morning peak.

New Images of Euston Station

 

Two brand-new images show the concept design for the exterior and interior of the station. The designs, updated from 2015, are based on a less complex, more efficient, ten-platform station that can now be built in a single stage.

They have been drawn up by a design consortium made up of Arup, WSP, Grimshaw Architects, Haptic and LDA Design, working into HS2’s Station Construction Partner, Mace Dragados JV (MDJV).

The updates will reduce the construction period and the impact for the local community and passengers using the existing conventional railway station at Euston. The station will maintain the capacity to run up to 17 trains per hour. 

 

BREAAM Outstanding Target

 

Designed to target a BREEAM outstanding rating, the station will feature a bold geometric roof design to allow natural light to flood into the station concourse.

Elements of the innovative roof can be prefabricated off-site, and installed using modular construction techniques, reducing costs, carbon emissions and local disruption.

Contract Opportunities at HS2

 

Construction of the HS2 station will offer hundreds of contract opportunities through the supply chain.

 MDJV recently began a multi-year procurement of packages worth £500million for work on the HS2 station and the London Underground at Euston and Euston Square.

 

Wider Euston Development

 

The integration of the stations at Euston means the areas above and around the stations and tracks can also be developed.

Lendlease, the Government’s appointed Master Development Partner at Euston, has started an 18-month long public consultation to seek the views of the local community about what would be of value to them in the development.
