This is a rectangular area, located at the foot of the escalators from the main concourse, with a spur leading west over the Central Line platforms and another leading south over the Northern Line.

The rectangle is divided by barriers and pillars which encourage a clockwise traffic flow.

The escalators from the main concourse come down west into the northeast corner of this area, whilst a second set leave east to passage 1, towards the Northern Line.
