Beaconsfield Street has been closed between Handyside Street and Rubicon Court to facilitate the construction of Building R7. More details on the construction of Building R7 will follow in due course.
Construction of Building R7, an office development with retail and an independent cinema at ground floor, commences in May 2015, and will complete in 2017. To enable these works to progress safely and with minimum disruption to the public, a short section of the Handyside Street footpath outside R7 will be closed, and a diversion will be in place to route pedestrians on to the opposite side of the street. Over the coming months, construction traffic will begin to travel in to the R7 site via Gates 21B and 22B on Handyside Street. A traffic management system will be in place to ensure a safe environment for the public. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please call our freephone helpline on 0800 328 8840 or email email@example.com.
The hoarding on the Building R7 site is being extended on the north side of Handyside Street to meet the road. The pedestrian (zebra) crossing on Handyside Street (currently located immediately to the west of the West Handyside Canopy) is being moved 10 yards to the east as there will be no pedestrian route along the north side of Handyside Street during these construction works.
To finish the canal towpath and at Gasholder No.8, a temporary pontoon has been put in place. The towpath will be reopened when the works complete at the end of September.
The traffic lights at the junction of Pancras Road and King's Boulevard will be relocated and improvements to the pavement in the vicinity of the junction will be undertaken.
From Monday 26 October 2015, the fencing will be extended to join up with the wall of Roseberry Mansions, which will close of the area of temporary parking next to Roseberry Mansions as this will form part of the construction site for a new residential building. This will initially be a netted heras fence until the new wooden hoarding is constructed. In addition, a new construction gate will be created along Beaconsfield Street for construction vehicles, which will be securely managed and operated. There will be a noticeable increase in construction traffic along Beaconsfield Street while the works take place. Construction of the new buildings will commence in November 2015 and complete in late 2016. The contractors will be taking all steps possible to reduce noise created by these works, but there will unavoidably be some noise created. We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause.
As part of the planning and ongoing works to Tapestry Apartments (Building T1), it is necessary for us to carry out weekend works to complete the building.

Enabling works will commence in late January, until March 2016, to prepare the site ahead of construction of the S2 Building on Handyside Street. The main construction programme will commence in March and the building is due to compete in late 2017. From Monday 25 January until March 2016 (week days only) between 08.00h to 18.00h, the contractor will be installing some temporary sheet-piling along the southern boundary of the site fronting Handyside Street. This section of work is anticipated to last for 4 weeks and will start in the south-east corner, working westwards towards the Plimsoll Building. A crane and press-in machine will be in operation during these works and whilst our contractors will be taking all steps possible to reduce noise created by these works there will, unavoidably, be some noise created. Contact telephone numbers for the contractor supervisors will be on display on the S2 site hoarding on the corner of Lewis Cubitt Park. They will be on site and can assist with any immediate queries. We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause.
As part of the planned and ongoing works at the Gasholder Building, and in order to commence re-erection of the listed Gasholders Frames, it is necessary for a changeover of the tower cranes to take place. This will involve the erection of a new crane and changes to the two existing cranes and will involve work over the weekends of 8/9 and 16/17 January. Works are scheduled to take place between Saturday 8 January and Monday 18 January and will involve the erection of a mobile crane to allow the dismantling and re-erection of Tower Cranes 1 and 3 and the erection of Tower Crane 2. The mobile crane will then be dismantled and removed from site. The works, in the main, are not expected to be noisy but some operations for erecting the tower cranes will involve the use of pneumatic tools and hammering to connect sections of the crane together. Every effort will be made to minimise noise but some disruption for local residents may occur. During the period, night works to rig and de-rig the mobile crane are scheduled to take place on Friday 15 and Monday 18 January. Noise will be kept to a minimum. These works are weather dependent and the weekend of 23/24 January is required for the erection of the final tower crane. King's Cross apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause.
