The East Coast Upgrade

Network Rail have started a multi-million pound programme into upgrading the East Coast Main Line as part of their rail upgrade plan.

As part of this programme, the infrastructure outside King’s Cross needs replacing including tracks, signalling and overhead line equipment. Once the King’s Cross Upgrade is completed, the station will benefit from more long-distance passenger services and a simpler, more reliable track layout for quicker, smoother journeys.

Work has already started and will continue over the next two years. You can find out more about this programme at
