New Escalators And Moving Walkways Between The Central And Northern Lines At Bank Station – 29th October 2022

This important link in the Bank Station Upgrade opened yesterday.

So this afternoon, I went and took these pictures, as I walked from the Central to the Northern Line interchange plaza at the Monument end of the station.

Note.

There is only a short bank of escalators between the Central Line and the moving walkways.

A good-sized landing for the escalators has been squeezed in at the top of the escalators between the two Central Line platforms.

At the bottom of the escalators, there is a generous space to accommodate the ninety-degree turn to and from the moving walkway.

The moving walkway appears wider than others on the Underground and is very well-lit.

At its Southern end, the moving walkway connects to the spacious interchange plaza, I wrote about in New Escalators At Bank Station Between The Northern Line And The DLR and showed in these pictures.

The interchange rule at the Bank/Monument station complex appears to be make for the interchange plaza and moving walkway and follow the signs.

  • The Central Line is at the Northern end.
  • The Northern Line is on either side.
  • The DLR is underneath the plaza.
  • The District/Circle Lines are at the Southern end.

I was surprised to see, that there were no staff in the interchange plaza.

Or would one of the Lizzie Line signposts be a good idea?

It could also have a clock.
