The restoration of London\'s King\'s Cross, its station and the adjacent goods yard is the biggest infrastructure project in Europe. It is a grade 1 listed building of lasting historical importance so nothing can be done at King\'s Cross without the say-so of English Heritage. There is a conflict between old and new as English Heritage wants to expose some 19th century cast-iron brackets, and architect John McAslan disagrees.
