Via London Reconnections: the new ticket hall at Kings Cross station will open on November 29th, according to First Capital Connect. While it won't be the end of works on the site, it will mean a significant reduction in walking times between Kings Cross mainline and Underground platforms, and St Pancras: for instance, shleppers from St P's Thameslink platform to the Piccadilly line can make the journey in just under six minutes, a reduction from the current eight-minute long haul. Step-free access work will continue on the site into the new year. For those interested, London Reconnections has a map of the area's warren of tube platforms and tunnels, while a walkthrough of the new ticket hall is on the FCC website.
