THE LOWER CONCOURSE

Describe Online

Overview

This irregular shaped space is effectively divided into two halves. The east half includes the area at the top of the escalators towards the FCC platforms 9 - 10 at level 3, whilst the west includes the entrance to the subway, plus the escalators and steps towards the Northern Line, platforms 7 - 8 at level 5.

The portion of these sections inside the gates is basically rectangular, being bounded on two sides by separate gate lines. A passage, running east/west, joins these two sections inside the gates.

The area outside the gates is an irregular passage running west from the foot of the steps from the east entrance, past the steps from the middle entrance, to the west gate line. The ticket sales facilities are on the right-hand (north) side of this area, between the two gate lines.
