We are proposing a shaft at the Big Yellow Storage Site off Lewisham Way at Alexandra Cottages, between New Cross Gate and Lewisham stations. We consulted on this site in 2017 and the majority of respondents supported the location.  

The shaft would provide an emergency access and evacuation route in the unlikely event of a fire or other incident. The shaft would also provide access for maintenance of the line and enables ventilation of the tunnels.  At the surface, a structure known as a head house would be built that contains the equipment for the shaft to function.
