Overview

At the time of our survey, there was stairs-only access between platforms via the subway.

Each set of steps consists of four flights of 11. The steps are divided by a double central rail which is interrupted across the landings between flights. We understand you're asked to keep left.

At the time of our survey, the gate line for platform 1, southbound included a bi-directional Wide Aisle gate at the right-hand end as you leave the platform, followed by two automatic entrances then two automatic exits. The gate line for platform 2, included a bi-directional Wide Aisle gate at the right-hand end, as you leave the platform, followed by two automatic exits, a single automatic entrance then another automatic exit.

This station was undergoing redevelopment at the time of our survey and we presume lifts will be installed during this work.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Southbound
From Platform 2, Northbound

From Platform 1, Southbound

Go beyond the rear of the train and continue through the gates into the ticket hall.

Continue forward, then go down four flights of steps into the subway. Turn left then take the turning left towards platform 2. Go through the gates then up four flights of steps to platform level. Continue generally forward, between the hoardings, onto the platform. We believe you're near the front of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Northbound

Go beyond the front of the train, follow the route between the hoardings then go down four flights of steps. The gate line is in front of you, go through the gates and turn right before you reach the entrance to the Underground Concourse. Take the turning right and go up four flights of steps into the ticket hall. The gate line for platform 1, southbound is in front of you, go through the gates onto the platform. We believe you're near the rear of the train.
