I went along to see the new Elizabeth Line station at Bond Street, which finally opened this morning (no, I didn't go on
the first trains through it!).

To answer a couple of obvious questions:

Yes, the EL has separate new entrances at both Davies Street and Hanover Square. Each has a new office block above. This
is similar to, say, Farringdon.

The Davies St entrance is close to, but not directly adjacent, to the LU Bond Street station entrances.

Yes, there is an underground LU-EL connection. It's at mezzanine level, between the escalator flights, and involves a
walk along a curvy corridor. It's comparable to the equivalent Bakerloo connection at Paddington, and shorter than the
Northern Line connection at Moorgate. So you can change between both the LU lines and the EL without going to the
surface or passing through a gate line.

There are departure boards outside the gate lines at both entrances. I don't recall seeing these at the other stations.

One thing I noticed is that the EL station name external signs again don't say 'Station'. So they just say 'Bond
Street', whereas the LU station entrances say 'Bond Street Station'. This can be slightly confusing when the station
entrance is some distance away from the named location (eg, Hanover Square isn't anywhere near Bond Street).

There are a lot of stations with the indicators either outwith the
gateline or clearly visible without having to pass the gateline. The
positioning can be variable because of the different station layouts
so it isn't impossible to miss some of them especially if you aren't
looking for them.

I missed the "the" so I was addressing more general TfL services.
I would keep an eye out for other examples but I don't expect to be
entering any XR stations from outside rather than changing within
stations. Perhaps our scouts can post details for various stations
until we have them all surveyed?
