THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This consists of two parallel passages running from the Northern Line Charing Cross Branch (platforms 1 - 2) to the escalators between the intermediate level and platforms 3 - 4. Note that platforms 5 - 6 lie between 1 - 2 and 3 - 4.

The passages are crossed by four intersections.

People are expected to move clockwise through this area. Hence, when turning left you take the first passage; when turning right, take the second.

The area is now described in detail from the foot of the downward escalator from the Underground concourse. The features of the other intersections are listed clockwise from the entrance to that area.
