Planned works

Until mid-June 2023

HS2 is removing the central reservation on Euston Road between North Gower Street and Eversholt Street.  

Lanes on the A501 Euston Road are closed for this work. Although four lanes are being kept open, the road is  extremely busy with long queues and delays.

The work is being carried out in phases:

  • Monday 20 February to early April -  two lanes open in each direction
  • Early April to mid-June - two lanes open eastbound, all three lanes open westbound

During these works

  • The speed limit of Euston Road is reduced to 20 MPH
  • Lane widths through the works is narrower than usual
  • There are queues heading east from Regents Park heading east and heading west beyond the Kings Cross Gyratory
  • There are significant delays to journeys
  • There are also be some local lane closures for works at night (usually 22:00-05:00) and at weekends


There is no bus lane in either direction and no dedicated cycle lane. Take care when driving as other users get used to unfamiliar layouts and narrower lanes

Driving to central London

  • Consider using a different route

  • Euston Road is less busy before 06:00 and after 22:00

Avoiding central London

These alternative routes could mean a quicker and easier journey:

  • The Inner Ring Road south of the river
  • The A406 North Circular
  •  The A205 South Circular 

Short trips

Access to locations along the A501 Euston Road or in central London is likely to be quicker and easier on foot, by cycle or by the tube.

See our walking tube map.


Bus services may be changed or delayed and bus stops may need to be moved along Euston Road between North Gower Street and Eversholt Street .  

  • The westbound bus lane has been shortened during the early stages of the works 

  • There is no eastbound bus lane during most of the works

  • These routes are expected to experience some disruption, delays or changes to their normal service:
    17,18, 24, 27, 29, 30, 46, 59, 63, 68, 73, 91, 134, 168, 205, 214, 253, 259, 390, 476, N5, N20, N73, N91, N205 and N253


  • There are no segregated cycle lanes on Euston Road at this location
  • Lanes are narrower
  • There are more HGVs and work vehicles in the area
  • There are alternative dedicated cycle lanes to the south along Tavistock Street
  • There are alternative dedicated cycle lanes to the south along Tavistock Street (see map below)


There are no more changes planned to pedestrian crossings for this phase of HS2 works. 

  • Pay attention to signs when you're walking in the area
