The campaign seeks to open up King's Cross Station for the use of the whole community. We are particularly concerned about the lack of east/west access to the station resulting from current redevelopment.
April 2009: Network Rail will close the historically important north eastern entrance to King’s Cross Station on Friday 24th April 2009. Local people will gather at the junction of Wharfdale Road and York Way to mark the sad day when the Somers Town and King’s Cross communities will be finally physically divided – something even the Victorian rail barons failed to do.

September 2008: In a press release (PDF, 19K), Open Up King's Cross Station has highlighted the problems with plans to close the north eastern entrance to the station. Over 17,000 residents, hundreds of businesses and 4,000 commuters a day would be shut out of their local entrance to the transport hub.
July 2008: The Open Up King’s Cross Station campaign launched its e-petition today asking the Prime Minister to press Network Rail to build a footbridge giving east/west access across the rear of King's Cross Station in London.
