Goods Way
Goods Way footpaths to be open by beginning of June 2012. Between Pancras Road and King's Boulevard the southern footpath and part of the carriageway will be closed for construction from June 2012 to summer 2014 and pedestrians will be diverted on to the northern footpath.

Pancras Road closure 30 May-1 June
From 8pm on Friday 30 May until 6pm on Sunday 1 June Pancras Road will be closed between the German Gymnasium and the entrance to the St Pancras Station Car Park to allow the removal of the final crane from the Six Pancras Square construction site. Traffic will be able to turn into Pancras Road from Euston Road but will only to access either the King’s Cross taxi rank or the drop off points at both stations. A temporary roundabout just north of the German Gymnasium will be installed to allow northbound traffic to turn south and for taxis to turn and access the King’s Cross taxi rank. There will be no access to both the St Pancras station car park and St Pancras station taxi rank northbound on Pancras Road during these periods. Instead, a diverted route from Euston Road via York Way, Goods Way and Pancras Road will be in place and signposted. Local bus diversions will be in place for the period.
King's Boulevard - planned closure
Due to a planned crane lift King's Boulevard will be closed between 7am and 11am on Sunday 13 April and between 10pm and 6am on Tuesday 15 April 2014. During these periods, pedestrians will be diverted via Pancras Road and Goods Way. The closure is to allow the IFO (Identified Flying Object), part of RELAY (the dedicated Arts Programme at King's Cross), to be moved from the north of the Estate to Battle Bridge Place.
Crane Removal at Building E1
Over the weekend of 24-26 May, the crane for Building E1 (the Stanley Building and Wrap) will be removed from site. This will be completed behind the hoardings and cause no disruption to pedestrians and road users in the area.
York Way/Handyside Street
As part of the King's Cross scheme, a number of roads in the area have recently been resurfaced. Now that the freshly laid tarmac has been in place for a minimum of six weeks, high friction surfacing can be applied. High friction surfacing is used on the approaches to major road junctions as it significantly reduces vehicular stopping distance. High friction surfacing needs to be applied to the junction between Handyside Street and York Way as well as the junction between Goods Way and York Way. In order to minimize the disruption to vehicles, these works will take place in the evening, starting at 19.00hrs. They are programmed to start on Monday 8 December and should take three evenings, although they are weather dependent as the surfacing cannot be applied in the rain. Each evening one lane of the road will be closed and appropriate traffic management will be put in place. The surfacing will be applied and the carriageway will remain closed while the high friction surfacing cures. This could take between 10 and 24 hours depending on the prevailing temperatures.
