The Concourse

Describe Online


The former bridge has been replaced by a significant concourse which bridges the tracks. Additional entrance/exit doors are across the northeast corner, northwest of the former doors which are still in place. A travel centre occupies the northwest corner of this space, with the entrance/exit doors in the east side.

This station is gated, the gate line runs approximately north/south across the concourse.

The area outside the gates is an irregular shape including the former entrance to the station. The area inside the gates is rectangular.

There's an additional ticket sales and information desk inside the gated section, adjacent to the travel centre.

The steps to the platforms are on the west side, with the associated lifts immediately east of these, the doors face into the concourse, that is on the east side of each lift. Single escalators are on the east side of the concourse, at the time of our survey, those from platforms 0 - 1 and 2 - 3 were upwards, whilst the one to platform 4, was downwards.
