Poor Euston. That totally harmless area of central London must be the most ****ed up and ****ed about neighbourhood in Britain.

If it is good - rip it out!! If it is bad, make it worse. Anything memorable, parochial or eye-catching must destroyed and pulverised.

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."

Perhaps it has different connotations in Australia?

The Times has a short piece about the many links between Sir David Higgins,
HS2 chairman, and Lendlease:

I was half expecting the story to be that LendLease had bought the
project off Carillion's receivers.

If it is good -


the 1960s rebuild of Euston's crap.

Almost no-one thinks otherwise

"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.

Last time this cropped up (about 2yrs ago) the prospect was one of
longer walks [part of my campaign against the railway industry
keep-fit-programme-for passengers] partly due to passive provision for
interchange with a future Crossrail 2 station also in the vicinity.
