The Anonymous Widower

Lost In The Purple

In Whitechapel Station Is The Preferred Interchange, I said this.

It certainly appeared to me from some staff, I spoke to, that some passengers were getting rather lost.

It was also confirmed by a member of Elizabeth Line staff at Moorgate station.

In A Look At Bond Street Station, I showed this image and said the following.

Bond Street station is double-ended.

This visualisation shows the knitting that connects it to the current Bond Street station.

Note.

  • The station has two entrances; Davies Street and Hanover Square.
  • The length of the Crossrail platforms.
  • It looks like the Western interchange between Crossrail and Jubilee Line is easy.
  • It could be quite a walk between Crossrail and the Central Line at Davies Street.
  • If you’re a strong walker, some will use the Hanover Square entrance to access the Central and Victoria Lines.

On this quick look, I have a feeling that at Bond Street station, it will pay to know your entrances and make sure you’re at the right place on the train.

I could have added, that it will pay to know your entrances on any of the large stations.

At the Moorgate end of Liverpool Street station, yesterday passengers were turning up, who really wanted the Liverpool Street end.

The subterranean  information needs to be better.

As an example, there are a few modestly-priced hotels, that include a Premier Inn, clustered around the Elizabeth Line station at Woolwich.

  • Woolwich station is  a simple single-ended station with the entrance at the Western end of the platforms.
  • So passengers for Woolwich should always get in the Western end of the Elizabeth Line trains.
  • That would be the front going West.
  • That would be the back going East.

If staying at a hotel near an Elizabeth Line station make sure you know your entrance and train position.
