Update of Hampstead Road utility works, 17-18 April

As part of ongoing utility works on Hampstead Road, we will be carrying out works over the weekend of 17 – 18 April, to install a water main within our site between the Euston Throat and Hampstead Road worksites. We do not expect the works to be very noisy and acoustic barriers will be in place to mitigate any noise. The works will be carried out on Saturday 8am – 6pm, and Sunday 10am – 4pm if they cannot be completed in the single Saturday shift. Please see notification .

Euston Station sound testing, 2-7 May

Network Rail will be testing the fire alarms and public announcement systems at Euston Station for five nights from Sunday 2 May until Friday 7 May 2021, between the hours of 01:30 – 03:00. Please see work item .
