The TICKET Office

Describe Online

Overview

So as not to fragment this too much, we'll consider this as including the space at street level as well as the ticket office itself, which is at platform level. There is stairs and lift access between these two sections.

The Street level section is a passage running east/west between the two entrances. The lift and stairs lead from the south side of this passage.

The low level section is a Y-shaped space with the main passage running west from the foot of the stairs. The ticket sales window is on the south side, whilst the lift is on the north. Beyond these, the passage forks so that the entrance to platform 1, eastbound, leads northwest, whilst that to platform 2, westbound leads southwest.
