National Location Codes and locations of ticket gates at multi-NLC Tube stations

The request was partially successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I understand that some London Underground stations are identified by a couple of National Location Codes. I would like to find out the NLC(s) assigned to a specific ticketing gate at a multi-NLC station, if there are several ticketing gates. Please could you let me know the following information regarding the multi-NLC Tube stations.

1) How many multi-NLC Tube stations are there in the whole network?

2) How many ticketing gates are there at each of the multi-NLC Tube stations?

3) Is one NLC particularly associated with one ticketing gate at a multi-NLC Tube station?

4) If a ticket gate is NLC-specific, which Tube line is the most closely adjacent to that ticket gate?

5) What is the NLC used by each of those ticketing gates at the multi-NLC Tube station.

Thanks

Yours faithfully,

Mike

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. I can
confirm TfL does hold the information you require. You asked for:

 

I understand that some London Underground stations are identified by a
couple of National Location Codes. I would like to find out the NLC(s)
assigned to a specific ticketing gate at a multi-NLC station, if there are
several ticketing gates. Please could you let me know the following
information regarding the multi-NLC Tube stations.

 

1) How many multi-NLC Tube stations are there in the whole network?

There are four, as set out in the table below.

Assuming “ ticketing gates” to mean gatelines:

east of the Western).

·         Kings Cross = 3 (Northern, Main tube, Western).

·         Stratford = 3 (Northern, Mezzanine, Main).

·         Waterloo = 3 (York Road, Jubilee and main Northern/Bakerloo).

    

3) Is one NLC particularly associated with one ticketing gate at a
multi-NLC Tube station?

 

The usage of NLCs is as set out in the table above.

    

4) If a ticket gate is NLC-specific, which Tube line is the most closely
adjacent to that ticket gate?

 

Please refer to the table above.

 

5) What is the NLC used by each of those ticketing gates at the multi-NLC
Tube station.

    

Please refer to the table above.
