The works include improvements to the track layout and the reopening of a disused tunnel in the main stage of a £1.2billion upgrade of the East Coast Main Line.
This will allow more trains to enter and exit the station, reduce congestion and bring smoother, more reliable journeys for passengers.
Multi-disciplined teams have worked around the clock to demolish platform edges, lift track and remove overhead line equipment in preparation for the biggest transformations which are due to occur over the Easter Bank Holiday period.

The project, which also includes upgrades to the power supply and a new tunnel at Werrington, will bring improved reliability and punctuality for passengers travelling on the East Coast Main Line, better connecting towns and cities between Scotland, the North and London.
Ed Akers, the Principal Programme Sponsor for Network Rail’s East Coast Upgrade, said: “It’s strange seeing no trains, no track and no passengers across half of King’s Cross as we make major progress to install the completely redesigned, simpler track layout.
“Working with the wider rail industry, we’ve managed well with the complex track that was laid over 40 years ago, but this vital stage of the project will make it much more practical for trains coming in and out of the station - meaning more reliable journeys for passengers.
“We’ve carefully planned this project to keep disruption to a minimum, and as we start work at platforms 7-11, trains will be able to use platforms 0-6. We want to thank passengers for their continued patience as we make essential changes to the signalling over the three-day closure.”
