THE SOUTHBOUND PLATFORMS

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is an island platform from which trains run south from this station. The Piccadilly Line, platform 3, lying west of platform 4, is designated westbound, whilst the Victoria Line, on platform 4 is southbound.

There are six passages between the platforms, from the front of the train, these are:

For the Underground station, the intention to have people keeping to the left will determine which passage is entrance or exit according to where you've come from. If you arrive via the Seven Sisters Road or Wells Terrace entrance, you'll arrive in the third passage from the front, whilst if you arrive from the Station Place entrance you'll be in the passage nearest the front of the trains.

Similarly, on leaving the platform, if you're going to the Station Place exit, you should leave via the third passage from the front, whilst you should leave via the passage nearest the front of the trains for the other exits.

At the time of our survey, we found people broadly sticking to this rule.

The route to/from the mainline station is the second passage from the rear of the train.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.
