WIDE AISLE GATE
London Underground is installing Wide Aisle Gates (WAGs) in many of its stations.
These are wide automatic gates, suitable for use by wheelchair users, those with Guide or Assistance dogs and customers with large luggage or pushchairs.
They’re operated in the same way as the normal automatic gates and there will normally be one in the entrance and exit section of each gate line.
In some stations, such as Victoria, Wide Aisle Gates have replaced the manual gates, though staff are still on hand to assist as necessary.
The gate line is divided into two sections, the exit gates are nearer the entrance.
The entrance gates are beyond the sales windows, with the Wide Aisle gate at the right-hand end as you come into the station, set beyond the automatic entrances.
