The Connection Between The Northern And Lizzie Lines At Tottenham Court Road Station

In Elizabeth Line To Northern Line At Moorgate Station, I described how I was rather underwhelmed with the connection between the Bank branch of the Northern Line and the Lizzie Line.

It’s just too far to walk in the long tunnel, which is not as well fitted out as the connection to the Bakerloo Line at Paddington.

At least it can be improved, without a major amount of expense.

So what is the connection between the Lizzie Line and the Northern Line like at Tottenham Court Road?

There is access to stairs and a lift at the Southern end of the Northern Line platforms, that lead to the pedestrian tunnel between the two platforms of the Lizzie Line.

These pictures show  the connection.

Note.

  1. It is certainly a lot easier than the connection at Moorgate.
  2. You have a choice of stairs or a lift between lines.
  3. Both Northern branches and both Southern branches of the Northern Line all have services through Tottenham Court Road station. Just make sure, that you get a Charing Cross branch train.
  4. If you’re using Tottenham Court Road station for changing to the Lizzie Line from the Northern Line, then make sure you get at the Southern end of the Northern train.
  5. If you’re using Tottenham Court Road station for changing to the Northern Line, then make sure you get at the Eastern end of the Lizzie Line train.

Practice will make perfect, how passengers handle this interchange.

Going Between Euston And Heathrow

There is no problem with the interchange to and from the Elizabeth Line, but getting to and from the Charing Cross branch of the Northern Line is not step-free.

Hopefully, High Speed Two and the rebuilding of Euston station will solve this problem.
