Overview

This bridge provides stairs and lift access between platforms. This description includes the buildings at platform level, which are outside the gates at each entrance to the station.

On Platform 1, Eastbound

At Platform Level

As you approach the entrance, the automatic doors are to your left (east), with a rail jutting out to each side.

You go in through automatic doors, facing east. Note that the steps are to your left and that you could walk underneath these. We suggest you continue forward from the doors, to the far wall before turning right for the lift, or left for the steps.
