Travellers to King's Cross, who have been waiting years for the unpleasant 1970s front hall to be removed, revealing the full glory of the original station, may take comfort from the news that Railtrack is losing control of the station revamp. While the company will carry out necessary works, funding and control will now come from Sir Alastair Morton's Strategic Rail Authority, which will upgrade the station as part of the East Coast improvement programme. Will this affect John McAslan's work on the frontage and replacement ticket hall to the west of the station? Possibly, but the authority will inject welcome certainty into the situation.
