Overview

At the time of our survey, there was step-free access to platform 1, southbound from the ramp, but stairs-only access from the Underground Concourse, via the subway. See the Environs page for details of the ramp access to this station.

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 left-hand end as you approach 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 left-hand end, as you approach 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.
