The redeveloped Grade I listed King's Cross Station has been shortlisted in the 'Innovation in Bridges' category of the Bentley Be Inspired Awards 2012.
The station's 250m long Main Train Shed, 22m high and 65m wide, across eight platforms, was transformed by several major interventions. There were renovations and weatherproofing of the two-vaulted roofs, meticulous repairs of sections of original Victorian brickwork, and the additions of photovoltaic arrays to supply top-up electricity to the station. The platforms were upgraded, platform 0 under the Eastern Range was put back into use and a new footbridge over the platforms is replacing the mid-shed Handyside bridge.
The winner will be announced in November 2012.
