THE INTERCHANGE LEVEL

Describe Online

Overview

This is divided into two sections which we'll call "east" and "west".

The west section lies under the tracks and platforms of the District/Circle Line and is reached via steps or escalator from platforms 1 and 2. Escalators connect this section towards the east end of the eastbound Jubilee Line, platform 3, whilst the emergency stairs connect the west side of this to the lower levels.

The east section lies underneath and south of the District/Circle Line and is reached by escalators from the concourse. Escalators connect this section to the middle of the eastbound Jubilee Line, platform 3. Note that the lift shaft from platform 1 to the Jubilee Line platforms does normally stop at this level.

The East Section, Going Clockwise from the Foot of the Escalators from the Concourse

The wall curves right in an arc, from east, through southeast, where there is a help point, then continues curving to become the south side, at the top of the escalators going down west towards the west well at the Jubilee Line eastbound level.

The escalators from platform 1 arrive southwest into a short passage leading west into this area. The south wall curves to the right, including the emergency stair exit, opposite the end of the passage, then continues curving through to become the north wall, which approaches the foot of the escalators going northeast towards the eastbound District Line, platform 2. There's a help point on the wall, opposite the escalators to/from the Jubilee Line.
