Last week Crossrail 2 announced its latest plans for a new railway line across London. They include a new station linking Euston and Kings Cross St Pancras beneath Somers Town. The plans, if they go ahead, would see council-owned Wellesley House lose 45 homes and Origin Housing Association lose 37 to make way for construction sites, vent shafts, and station entrance works.
Among the businesses that could be destroyed if the plans go ahead is the Travelodge on Eversholt Street. The Royal George pub and more than 60 privately-owned homes could also be demolished in the process.
To find out more, visit the consultation events at the Somers Town Community Centre this week:
Friday 6 November, 12pm–8pm
Saturday 7 November, 11am–4pm.
