Eurostar has launched a series of expansion works at Paris Gare du Nord to improve the station’s check-in area.
Travellers are asked to check in for their journey five to ten minutes early, especially at peak times, in case of disruption.
The works will reduce queues by adding new check-in gates, an additional x-ray machine and increased capacity through border controls.
The new gates will accept barcode ticketing which Eurostar will trial later this year.
Most improvements will be carried out at night to minimise disruption and the project will be completed by the summer.
Director of communications for Eurostar Simon Montague said: “With record numbers of travellers now using Eurostar, these improvements are vital. Once they are completed, travelling with Eurostar will be even easier for millions of people each year.”
