HL Deb 03 September 1998 vol 593 cc31-2WA
Baroness Platt of Writtle

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, in the new Westminster underground station, escalators will be fitted for access to the platforms. [HL 3217]

Lord Whitty

Yes. The new station at Westminster, currently under construction, will be fitted with escalators linking the ticket hall with the Jubilee Line Extension platforms, from where there will also be escalator access to the District and Circle lines. Direct access from the ticket hall to the District and Circle Line platforms will be by fixed staircases.
