For decades rail users travelling south from Cambridge and Peterborough have found Kings Cross the end of the line.
But from next spring a short, new stretch of railway will make it possible to access a lot more destinations.
In addition Govia Thameslink which operates the services says new rolling stock and greatly increased passenger capacity is also on the way.
Passenger numbers into Kings Cross have increased by 70 % in just 14 years, six times what was anticipated.
Govia Thameslink, which operates the services, says following a year long consultation timetables are being ripped up and re-written from scratch to provide more trains when they're needed.
Three quarters of the company's rolling stock is also being replaced at a cost of £1.4 billion.
Introducing all of these improvements is expected to take until the end of 2019, but passengers should start to feel the benefits in just six months time.
