Axonometric drawings of every station

James made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I would like complete axonometric drawings of every single station on the London Transport network. Specifically, this is every currently operating station on every single currently operating tube line (excluding DLR and London Overground).

Moreover, on a previous request made by another user under reference FOI-0368-1516, the "note" on every plan states that "for specific areas refer to the relevant sheets of the plan" however these "relevant sheets" are not provided. Please can these be provided, and if these cannot be provided due to potential safety and security risks, I will be provided with a specific justification as to why the exact sections of the plans have been omitted.

Furthermore, I would like documents showing the track distance and time between each station on each line on the tube network, as well as working timetables for each tube line.

Finally, I would like a list of the walking distance between platforms at every station and also a separate list of every station accompanied with its corresponding entry/exit/changeover carriage. For example, if at Canons Park Station the nearest exit on the Northbound platform was at the 2nd Carriage from the front, please provide "Canons Park N 2" and so on for every tube line at every station on the Network.

Yours faithfully,

James Harris

Dear Mr Harris

 

Our ref: FOI-1216-1718/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 20
August 2017 asking for various information about London Underground.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that
we do hold some of the information you require.

 

Axonometric Drawings are only available for “Section 12” stations. They do
not exist for above ground stations or disused stations. Each station that
has an axonometric generally only has one as an overview although some
complex stations do have more than one. The other drawings you refer to
are more conventional plans showing information that is of a security or
commercial sensitivity hence not publically issued. It would exceed the
cost limit for dealing with Freedom of Information requests for us to
identify which station plans had additional information and then to
provide you with an explanation of why each one is exempt from disclosure.
 

 

Drawings for the ‘section 12’ stations are already in the public domain,
for example here:

 

[1]https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/2015/07...

 

Working timetables are published on our website here:

 

[2]https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publication...

 

Distances and times are all within the Working Timetables.

 

Walking distances between platforms at every station can be calculated
using our Journey Planner  - [3]https://tfl.gov.uk/plan-a-journey/

 

The ‘separate list of every station accompanied with its corresponding
entry/exit/changeover carriage’ that you have also requested is not
information which we hold in this format. Such information is available
from Apps such as ‘Tube exits’ – or you can compile your own list by
visiting each station.

 

Please note that under section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act we are
not obliged to provide you with information which is reasonably accessible
by other means.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
