"combining Euston and Euston Square for the first time"

Interesting. What's the ETA on that bit?

Presumably the LU platforms won't be moved, but I'm presuming the
connection at Euston Square will come in at the near end, thus
shortening the interchange.

Yes, the eastern end of the sub-surface platforms is close to Euston NR and
LU stations.

It's a strange name for a company, Lendlease. It allows peoples' minds to wander back to the worst time in this country's history, when we held out a begging cap to FDR and were handed a wispy lifeline in return for massive concessions.

I can imagine some 14-year old history student reading about that episode and thinking, "THAT is what I'll call my company when I grow up."

well if you have seen some of the rubbish built over the last few years
at the Elephant you will see what they are about, Southwark sold them a
load of land, a council estate was demolished and the "luxury flats"
that have replaced it are of a higher density, closer together and of
course largely owned by people who are never going to live there. And
they succeeded in getting another company to produce a report proving it
was uneconomical to build any social housing, a common scam these days.
So there is almost no social housing there, and basically its the slums
of tomorrow being built today..... you may not agree with this analysis
but its commonly held here in Southwark. Lots of South London councils
appear to be in bed with developers, very much to the detriment of
council tenants and ordinary not millionaire people.
