THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

Describe Online

Overview

This level consists of a passage running east/west, which we'll call the Main Passage. The Main Passage is crossed by three passages running north/south, which we'll call the East, Middle and West passages.

Another passage, which we'll call the South Passage, leads east from the foot of the escalator from the Concourse, to the East Passage.

The East Passage is at the top of the steps and escalators to the Northern Line southbound platform 4 to the east, whilst steps to the District Line eastbound platform 2, the Main Passage, the South Passage and the escalator to the Concourse are on the west.

The Middle Passage runs between the steps from each District Line platform.

The West Passage has the Main Passage, the west steps to each District Line platform, escalators to/from the Northern Line northbound platform 3, an escalator to the Concourse and an escalator from the Concourse on the east side, whilst the escalators to/from the Bakerloo Line platforms 5 - 6 are on the west side.

The steps from the South Passage to the District Line westbound platform 1 and those from the East Passage to the District Line eastbound platform 2 bring you opposite the exit steps towards the Concourse, whilst the steps to the District Line from the West Passage bring you beside the foot of the steps from the Concourse.

The middle steps from each District Line platform are the entrances to this level.
