Further lift and escalator details

These tables and the associated notes are subsidiary to the page describing lifts and escalators. They provide further details on each set of escalators ("E"), lifts ("L"), and moving walkways ("Travolators", "T") on the Underground.

At present the table describes the location of each set and their vertical rise. Further details may be added in the future.

L3-4 SBH W/B Hammersmith & City Line

[1] These are allegedly the longest escalators in Western Europe; the Kiev Metro has an escalator with a 66m (217') rise.

[2] There is no visible indication as to which lift has which number; it is assumed that the lift with the lower serial number has the lower LU reference number as well.

[3] The public lifts at Green Park and at King's Cross St. Pancras each have a letter used on signs.

[4] Sources state that escalator number 3 is 0.03m (about 1") less than this height, which is for escalator number 1 (number 2 is a fixed stair). This difference is not immediately visible on-site.

Notes

+ up or down stairs to described feature
SBH booking hall at street level (or up to 5 steps from street level)
UBH underground booking hall with stairs to street level
E/B, W/B, N/B, S/B eastbound, westbound, northbound, southbound
IL intermediate level
LP passage linking two sets of escalators and (usually) nothing else

Heights in italics are deduced from the station layout, and may not be accurate.

The features described are intended to indicate the approximate, not exact, location of the equipment in question. The mention of one platform at a station does not mean that others are not served as well, just that this one is the nearest or at the same level. Except where shown otherwise, escalators end and lifts stop level with the platform or other described feature.

Terms like "east" generally refer to actual, albeit approximate, compass directions. However, on platforms they refer to the nominal direction of the line. For example, at Canning Town (1) the platforms are approximately north-south; the "east" end of the Jubilee Line is the north end, while the "east" end of the DLR is the south end. "IL east" means the east end of a single intermediate level, while "east IL" is one of two disconnected areas (at the same level if the prefix is directional).

Where lifts stop at more than two levels, the locations served are divided arbitrarily between the "bottom" and "top" columns. Within each column locations are listed from top to bottom, separated by horizontal lines.

An emergency lift is one provided for firefighters' access to the platforms and for the evacuation of wheelchair-bound passengers. These are not within the areas normally accessible to passengers, and details of where they serve are not always available, though they can sometimes be deduced from the height of the ascent.
