The Concourse

Overview

This is a rectangular space oriented north/south with the entrance from the taxi rank at the north end, two entrances from the Union Square shopping mall on the east and the gate line on the west. The lift and two sets of steps to the bridge also leave from the west side of this space.

The two entrances on the east are via passages from the shopping mall, the northern of these passages is beside (south of) the travel centre, for which there are two sets of automatic doors. We understand the east set of doors is the entrance, whilst the west (nearer the concourse) is the exit, though we found people using each set in both directions.

In the Middle of the Concourse

We noted the ticket machine and shell monument outside (west of) the south entrance. There's a bank of back-to-back seats between these and the south steps to the bridge. There's also a bank of back-to-back seats opposite each set of phones.

At the time of our survey, there were several signs warning of the slippery floor, positioned throughout the concourse.
