THE SUBWAY

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

At the time of our survey, this provided access between the Underground Concourse and each of the two platforms which were available at the time of our survey.

The entrance from the Underground Station is on the north side, towards the west end of this subway, whilst the routes to the platforms lead south.

To each platform, you go up 4 x 11 steps, going south. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps. The steps are divided by a central, double rail which is interrupted across the landings between the flights of steps.

We presume lifts will be installed during the redevelopment of this station.

Layout

This is a passage running east/west, which was lined with hoardings at the time of our survey. We therefore have little to add to the Overview at this stage, watch this space.

To reach platform 2, northbound, leave via one of the four gaps, the gate line is in front of you. Go through the gates, then up 4 x 11 steps to platform level. The route to the platform was lined with hoardings at the time of our survey, so the details may vary. Continue onto the platform.
