The complex redevelopment plan for the high speed train terminus would have involved a 12-year construction programme at the site.
Engineers have drawn up a less ambitious plan to retain many of the existing platforms minimising disruption to train services and cutting years off the programme.
The proposals would still see the station revitalised for passengers and see new homes, offices and shops built above.
HS2 chief executive Alison Munro said: “In response to community concerns about the potential disruption caused by the redevelopment of Euston Station, and following more work done by our engineers to find the best way to deliver best value for taxpayers, we have identified an option that delivers great opportunities for the area while minimising the potential effects on local communities.”
“We are looking at an option for Euston Station which would see new platforms built as part of an integrated, redeveloped station with a combined concourse, new western entrance and improved facilities across the integrated terminus.”
- Retaining platforms 1-15 (of Euston’s 18 platforms) at their current level with some modifications (this includes removing platforms 9 and 10 so that adjacent platforms can be lengthened – resulting in 13 long platforms) but improving the station around them – with a new concourse
- Building 11 new platforms for high speed trains next to the existing platforms.
