A new Shared Service Yard has been taking shape below the ground at King’s Cross.

This subterranean volume adjacent to platforms 9, 10 and 11 of King’s Cross Station will be shared by Network Rail and King’s Cross Central to service the refurbished and enhanced station and a future King’s Cross Central office building above. It will accommodate the full range of heavy goods vehicles used for goods in, recyclables and waste out. 

The yard will ultimately be accessed via an access ramp from Goods Way. For now the ramp has been part-constructed to connect to the existing highway network within the King’s Cross Central site. 

The ramp will also service future King’s Cross Central buildings to the north and will serve as part of the foundation for those buildings.

The Shared Service Yard and access ramp are being delivered by Network Rail under a cost sharing agreement with King’s Cross Central. The contractor is Taylor Woodrow.

The civil and structural works are now complete. Fit out will be completed this summer and the works are expected to come into use towards the year end, freeing the surface for the delivery of public pedestrian spaces between the stations.
