It looks like Euston station might be one step closer to getting that fancy new makeover, as the people behind HS2 have released a redesign of the original plans, which were first published two years ago. But it ain't coming cheap – the new plans require an extra £250 million, bringing the total cost to a clean £2.25 billion. But that's just pocket change considering the whole HS2 project has a whopping budget of £42 billion.

The revamp includes a 'bolt on' station for HS2, more space for homes, offices, shops and restaurants, a new underground ticket hall, 11 new platforms and, er, a bright yellow roof that looks like a giant satellite dish. HS2 has also extended the construction period from nine years to 16 to limit disruptions. The redesigned plans will be submitted to Parliament next week and if it gets the green light then construction will kick off in 2017.
