Jan 26th 2007 11:44PM Why not retain the existing Waterloo Eurostar Terminus, and have both termini available, so that passengers from both the Waterloo area (including govt offices!) and the Northern, St. Pancras side of London can be served? This would seem an excellent solution!
Merely moving the location to St. Pancras, and depriving the whole of the Central/South/West End — a vast constituency! — seems a flaky and cheap idea, for all that the St. Pancras loop may be, trackwise, better suited to HS operation.
In any event, at some point in the future — nearer than further, one would hope, assuming a certain degree of intelligence on the part of politicians and planners — the Waterloo Eurostar Terminus will have to be upgraded to HS operation, so why not retain it?!
Is it a budget thing?
There's a saying...buy cheap, GET cheap.
