Let’s open up King’s Cross Station for all of us!

Kxne Network Rail has suggested holding a public meeting to discuss access to the station from the northeasern side. From responses I’ve had so far, our community is overwhelmingly in favour of this as long as it’s organised well. (See postings on this issue below.)

Not only is the section of our community on the northeastern side keen on a public meeting, but also Maiden Lane estate (just further up York Way), the community on the south side of Euston Road, at least one LB Camden councillor, at least one LB Islington Councillor, Camden Cycling Campaign, King’s Cross Community Safety Partnership, at least one local architects office and more people and organisations are contacting me by the hour.

So, I’ve had a brainwave. Rather than Network Rail organising a public meeting for our community, why don’t we propose organising it jointly with them? That will make it easier all round to ensure the meeting is organised for the benefit of all.

Please let me know if you want to see such a public meeting take place. Also, let me know if you might be interested in joining a co-ordinating team to help organise it.

I’ve started pinning key points on a Google Earth map (pictured), to make clear how large and varied our community is – there is so much that it’s already difficult to fit it all in. I’ve concentrated on the north eastern side and would welcome locations from you that should be added – including the south and west sides of the station.
