DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is an island platform, with a central reservation, running north/south with platform 9, serving trains towards Lewisham or Woolwich Arsenal, lying east of platform 10, signed alighting only. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

To Reach

These platforms can be reached via lift, escalator or stairs from the Intermediate Level, via escalator or stairs from the westbound, platform 1 of Monument Station, or via stairs from the Northern Line, platforms 3 - 4.

Note that platform 10 is signed alighting only, so these directions are limited to routes to platform 9.

From the Intermediate Level

You can leave the Intermediate Level via escalator, steps or lift.

Via the Escalator

The left-hand escalator is normally the one you need, go down to DLR level then take the turning left onto platform 9, near the rear of the train.

Via the Steps

You go down 14, 3 x 15 then 14 steps, going south to DLR level, then take the turning left onto platform 9, near the rear of the train.

Via the Lift

Take the turning left, before the top of the downward escalators and find the lift door on your right.

From Monument Station

You can reach the DLR platforms via escalator or stairs from the entrance/exit area on platform 1, westbound.

Via Escalators

Although the downward escalators were being refurbished at the time of our survey, we understand the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need. You go down to a passage which veers left then right again before you reach the second set of escalators. From here, you go down to the south end of the central reservation between the DLR platforms. Take the first turning right onto platform 9, near the front of the train.

Via the Steps

You go down 13, 4 x 14, then 13 steps, going northwest into the passage between the two sets of escalators. There’s a long rail before and after these steps which are between escalators.

You go down 6 x 14 steps, going north. There’s a long rail before and after these steps. Take the first turning right onto platform 9, near the front of the train.

Take the turning left (west) then left again (south) and go down 16 steps, going south, into the reservation between the DLR platforms.
