Elizabeth Line – Moorgate Station – 27th May 2022

I took these pictures as I walked between the Northern Line and the Moorgate entrance to the Liverpool Street station on the Elizabeth Line.


  1. There is a lift and stairs at the Northern Line end.
  2. I would estimate that the tunnel is about two hundred metres long.
  3. There are resting bars at intervals.
  4. There are two help points along the tunnel.
  5. There are two lifts to get to the Elizabeth Line ticket hall, at the other end.

I was able to walk it today, but when my damaged knee is playing up, I will not use this route.

However, the rat-up-the-drainpipe route to the surface, that I described in Up From The Depths At Moorgate Station is still available.

But this route is not wheel-chair and buggy friendly.

In this route, a single escalator is taken from the Northern Line platforms to the National Rail platforms, from where there is a double escalator to the ticket hall level.


The rat-up-the-drainpipe route is acceptable to me, but I don’t feel the step-free route via the long tunnel will be acceptable for all those, who need to use it.

It’s just too long to walk for many!

Perhaps the addition of seats for a rest would help.
