HS2 to commence preliminary works on Euston Road

HS2 to commence preliminary works on Euston Road
HS2

HS2 is set to carry out preliminary works on Euston Road in both directions, from Monday 9 January to mid-February 2023.

 

Further works on Euston Road are planned from February 2023 onwards for a number of years, to prepare the area for the construction of the new HS2 station at Euston.

 

HS2 is carrying out works between Upper Woburn Place and Gower Street in both directions of Euston Road, from 9 January until mid-February, on both the footway and carriageway.

 

This preliminary work is to prepare for major utilities diversions required under Euston Road. The road will remain open in both directions but there will be bus lane closures as part of the work.

 

TfL is advising customers travelling through the area to check their journeys before they travel in case of any disruption.

 

Diversions will be in place for people walking, where HS2 work requires footways to be closed.

 

Following this, HS2 will be carrying out further works on Euston Road over the coming years, which will cause further disruption.

 

There will be separate weekend closures of Euston Bus Station on 27-29 January, 3-5 February and 10-12 February.

 

This is to allow for works to widen the junction between the bus station and Eversholt Street, in preparation for the relocation of the taxi rank at Euston.

 

TfL is working with HS2 to minimise disruption to people driving, using public transport and people walking and cycling and ensure people are informed about the changes.

 

The first lane closures are planned to be in place from the end of February.

 

There will be no dedicated cycle facilities on Euston Road due to the extent of the HS2 works, related HGV construction traffic and lane closures.

 

Alternative routes in the area are being recommended by TfL as a safer alternative for more vulnerable road users, including people cycling and riding rental e-scooters and motorcycles.

 

TfL remains committed to its Vision Zero goal to eradicate death and serious injury from its roads and transport network.

 

TfL is advising drivers to be aware of the restrictions and narrower lanes and look out for vulnerable road users, taking care when driving through the area.
