From the ticket hall, three escalators take passengers to and from the platforms. There are also passenger lifts between street level, the ticket hall and the platforms to provide step free access.[1][2] The station is laid out as a two-track terminus with a scissors crossover north of the station, and the line continues for a short distance south of the station platforms to form a pair of sidings. These are used for the overnight stabling of a pair of trains, which then form the mornings' first two northbound services. Station improvements[edit] As part of a framework agreement with London
London
Underground, Chetwoods were engaged to carry out an extensive refurbishment of the passenger areas of Brixton
Brixton
Underground Station.[7] This included an overall redesign of the station’s external façade and entrance lobby, together with refurbishment of a number of smaller retail outlets and the ticket office.[7] The scheme developed the Practice’s expertise in the particular technical and design requirements of underground facilities, benefitting the design approach to projects for other clients such as Network Rail.[7] The refurbishment started in 2001, and was completed in 2010. The station was briefly closed for asbestos removal in 2006.[citation needed] The refurbishment works were a long drawn out process.[8] New panels and lighting have been installed in the escalator shaft.[8] Location[edit] The station is in Brixton
Brixton
Road and is about 100 m[9] from Brixton railway station[5] (on the London
London
Victoria to Orpington line, operated by South Eastern). Although the route of London
London
Overground also runs close to Brixton
Brixton
tube station, there is no station in Brixton
Brixton
on this route because the South London
London
Line is on high railway arches, and Overground trains pass overhead.[10][11]
