THE PLATFORMS

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There are two island platforms 1 - 2 and 3 - 4 such that platforms 3 - 4 lie north of platforms 1 - 2.

The platforms lead east from the upper concourse. A subway near the east end links both island platforms to the tower concourse.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms.

To Reach

From the subway, you can either go up 14 then 14 steps, going west, or 17 then 11 steps, going east. At the time of our survey, it wasn't clear which route is intended as entrance or exit.

There's a help point behind the west steps on each island platform. These help points have two buttons in a rectangular housing. The top button is for assistance, whilst the bottom one is for emergency.
