TfL's Interchange Team has begun discussions with Network Rail about how improved transport and interchange facilities as well as public realm can be integrated with the substantial redevelopment of Euston station planned by Network Rail. Key objectives will be to improve Tube, taxi and bus arrangements, create better walking routes and to make the transport hub fully accessible.London Underground has been working with Network Rail over the redesign of Euston station since a masterplan was first developed in 2000. Works are currently on site for the Underground station modernisation, which is funded through the PPP and due to be delivered in 2008. LU is funding the re-modelling of the gateline as a variation to the modernisation to deliver a short term congestion relief measure.
