Kings Cross access – no movement forecast from Network Rail

Kings_cross_station_3_3Camden planning officials knocked back Network Rail’s plans for refurbishing Kings Cross – in part due to the lack of access from York Way.  Network Rail’s revised plans are due in the next day or so.  However it seems that they have ignored the views of the community and still have not relented on access from York Way.  Cllr Convery has posted here a read out from Islington Planners who made the case to their Camden Counterparts.  This chimes with a conversation i had on Monday with Camden officials.  You can see how stupid the situation would be with the graphic below you can click on it to make it bigger (if there are any good graphics people out there who can knock up something better than my amateuish effort that would be great)

Kingscrossaccess_3 You rarely win a race at the first hurdle, so we need to up the pressure to prevent Network Rail splitting our community in half.  I shall post some letter writing and other campaign materials and a plan of action here in the next day or so.

The Downing Street petition meanwhile is coming along nicely with 95 signatories – keep getting friends to sign everything helps.
