It will be located below ground between Liverpool Street and Moorgate. The ticket hall for Moorgate station is in Moor House, built five years ago, which will be adopted for Crossrail. The Moor House development also contains a 40m-deep draught relief shaft, which was built in its lower basement for the Crossrail development. The new entrances will provide step-free access between the street and Crossrail platforms.

The western entrance will be integrated with the existing Moorgate station at the south end of Moorfields. At the eastern end the Crossrail platforms will be connected to the existing London Underground ticket hall and a new entrance and ticket hall located in the north pavement of Liverpool Street next to the Broadgate development.

A construction site will be located in the gardens of Finsbury Circus, which will be restored after works are complete, while 11-12 Blomfield Street will be demolished for ventilation and emergency access facilities.
