THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This level comprises the entrance/exit routes between the Bakerloo and Victoria Line platforms to the main concourse, plus an exit section between all platforms and the exit concourse.

Two pairs of escalators join the main concourse to the intermediate level, the left-hand (west) pair leads towards the northbound section, whilst the right-hand (east)pair leads towards the southbound. At the time of our survey, the left-hand escalator of each pair is the one you need, however, this may change during peak times.

There are two more pairs of escalators from this section to platform level, arriving toward the north end of the platforms. Again, the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need.

A further pair of escalators leads between here and the bridge over the eastbound Central Line - we understand this route is entrance only.

There is stairs-only access from all platforms to the exit section which lies south of the Bakerloo and Victoria Line platforms and west of the Central Line. There are three escalators going up from the exit section to the exit concourse.

The North (Entrance/ Exit) Section

This is normally considered as being in two halves, the west half leading to the northbound platforms, whilst the east half leads to the southbound and Central Line.

The Exit Section

>

This is an irregular shaped space with passages from the Bakerloo and Victoria Line platforms entering the north side, whilst the passage from the Central Line enters the south. The three escalators to the exit concourse leave, approximately southeast.

Rather than describing these features around the walls, as normal, we'll list their relative orientation as you would face whilst leaving the passage from the northbound Bakerloo Line, platform 4. Note that there's a large pillar in the middle of this space.

  passage from Platform 4 behind you, 6 o'clock
passage to and from platform 3 on your left (9 o'clock)
passage to and from platform 5, (11 o'clock)
2 escalators to the exit concourse, (1 o'clock), going southeast
A pillar in the middle of the intersection
3rd escalator to the exit concourse, (2 o'clock), going southeast
passage to the Central Line, (3 o'clock)
passage to platform 5 (5 o'clock)
