Why do the Northern and Victoria line southbound platforms at Euston have partly raised platforms?

provides a level access for wheelchair users to alight if you were to travel up the full length of the line the raised platform humps are in exactly the same location. Pretty good idea if i am honest and assist wheelchair users greatly

Biggest thing that bugs me about the railway today is the Lack of level access for trains. Not just for wheelchairs, but to reduce the safety issues of the step/gap (I've expressed my discontent at London Bridge rebuilt still having a step and a gap).

These level bits are the same across each line so that a certain part of the train is designated level access. Someone on this forum mentioned that these should also be coming to the Thameslink core after Class 700 introductions

Euston tube station doesn't currently have wheelchair access though, but the level access part of the platform could be used by wheelchair users transferring between the Northern Line (Bank branch) and the Victoria Line.

Level access is also useful for people with buggies, or heavy luggage.
