Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Thameslink entrance in Pentonville Road is owned by Network Rail. London Underground is seeking to keep this entrance open after Thameslink moves from its current location into St Pancras. LU is therefore examining the costs and feasibility of transferring this entrance from Network Rail to LU. Once this has been completed LU will be in a position to decide whether this will be possible.London Underground Kings Cross Station does not own or manage an entrance on York Way.
