THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

Describe Online

Overview

This is an extensive, complex area which includes the intermediate level concourse, the Jubilee Line interchange and the interconnecting passages between these.

The intermediate level concourse is the rectangular space between the foot of the escalators from the Underground concourse and the foot of the escalators from the Shell Centre concourse. The Jubilee Line interchange is the rectangular area between the top of the two sets of escalators between here and platform level.

The interconnecting passages include:

  1. The passage leading northwest from the foot of the Jubilee Line escalators from the Underground concourse;
  2. The first passage on your right from the foot of the Jubilee Line escalators from the Underground concourse, leading north to passage 3;
  3. The first passage on your left from the foot of the escalators from the Shell Centre concourse. This bridges the Northern Line then continues across the ends of passages 1 and 2, then continues via optional travelators, to the Jubilee Line interchange;
  4. The second passage on your left from the foot of the escalators from the Shell Centre concourse. This bridges the Northern Line before crossing passage 1 and ending at passage 2;
  5. The first passage on your left from the foot of the Jubilee Line escalators from the Underground concourse. This leaves passage 1, then bridges the Northern Line then enters the intermediate level concourse. This is the "no entry" passage, being the second on your right from the foot of the escalators from the Underground concourse (the third on your left from the escalators from the Shell Centre concourse).
  6. From the foot of the escalators from the Jubilee Line concourse, past the lift, to the Jubilee Line interchange and
  7. From the Jubilee Line interchange to the escalators towards the Jubilee Line concourse.
