One of Britain’s busiest railway stations has dropped off an index of Europe’s top 50 rail hubs with CovidEurostar and border issues to blame.

St Pancras International in central London saw passenger numbers fall from 36 million, as listed in 2022’s European Railway Station Index, to just over 18 million in the latest ranking. Dr Emil Panzaru, who co-authored the index, told Express.co.uk St Pancras fell out of the top 50 due to the drop.

He said: “We could not add it to the list this year due to the decline in passenger volume… This was a major drop with the Covid pandemic, Eurostar woes and problems with entry and exit systems contributing.”

The latest index uses figures published by the Government’s Office of Road and Rail and covers the period April 2021 to March 2022. It is backed by US based advocacy group, Consumer Choice Center.
