THE VICTORIA LINE PLATFORMS

Describe Online

Overview

This is an island platform running approximately north/south with platform 3, northbound, lying west of platform 4, southbound.

The central reservation between these platforms is divided into a southern section which is connected by escalators to the Victoria Line concourse and a northern section which is connected by escalators to the intermediate level and thence to the Circle/District Line platforms.

There's no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.
