THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
This is the section of the station which lies between the low level concourse and platforms 16 and 17.
This level includes two passages, the one leading south from the area at the foot of the escalators, we'll call the east passage, whilst the one leading west from this space will be called the west passage.
The east passage leads south, across the top of the east steps to the platforms, to the Argyle Street south entrance. The west passage leads west, past the lift from the main concourse then turns left (south) the lift to the platforms is on the east side of this passage, whilst the west steps lead down from the west.
There are three gate lines in this part of the station:
From the low level concourse, you can go down the escalator, going west, or go down 10 steps, going south, turn right (180 degrees) then down 10 steps, going north, into the area at the foot of the escalators. The lift is on the north side of the west passage, inside the gates.
