Railtrack has started a feasibility study for Euston station to look at providing extra customer facilities and create new shops, restaurants and commercial space in what is potentially one of the country's biggest station regeneration schemes.

The project team will identify improvements to the station and its facilities for the benefit of the train operators and the travelling public and to highlight any commercial development opportunities.

Railtrack has already produced some preparatory plans for the station which identified around £25 million of improvements to the main station concourse and concentrated on increasing the facilities and retail outlets on offer to station users. These plans will be incorporated into the feasibility study now underway.

The project team has been drawn from the very best that the property development world has to offer including architects RMJM, quantity surveyors Franklin & Andrews, planning consultants Nathaniel Litchfield and commercial advisors Hillier Parker.

Paul Connellan, Railtrack General Manager, Major Stations said: "I am very pleased to launch another exciting scheme for one of Railtrack's major stations. Railtrack is first and foremost about running a safe and reliable railway but we must ensure that our stations have the facilities and opportunities for rail users and the community in and around the station."

Euston station is unique among Railtrack's London major stations as it has no listed status. With the help and assistance of the local planning authority the station could look very different in the future.

Paul Connellan continued, "We will ensure that all interested parties are fully briefed, especially Camden Council who will be consulted closely about the proposals that come out of the feasibility study now under way."

The feasibility study should be completed by the Spring of next year when the resulting options produced by the study will be taken forward to a 12 month detailed design and development stage. Works to the station could possibly start during 1999 and will probably be phased to reduce any disruption to the travelling public.
