WIDE AISLE GATES
London Underground is installing Wide Aisle Gates (WAGs) in many of its stations.
These are wide automatic gates, suitable for use by wheelchair users, those with Guide or Assistance dogs and customers with large luggage or pushchairs.
They’re operated in the same way as the normal automatic gates and there will normally be one in the entrance and exit section of each gate line.
In some stations, such as Victoria, Wide Aisle Gates have replaced the manual gates, though staff are still on hand to assist as necessary.
There's a Wide Aisle gate at each end of the entrance/exit gate line in the Central Line Concourse, the right-hand gate is normally the one you need. There's also a Wide Aisle gate at the left-hand end of the exit gate line from this concourse.
At the time of our survey, there were no Wide Aisle gates in the Northern Line Concourse, nor at the entrance to the Waterloo & City Line.
