THE LOW LEVEL CONCOURSE

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is a passage leading east from the low level Hope Street entrance. The lift, escalators and steps from the main concourse are on the left-hand (north) side followed by the ticket sales windows which jut out (south). The well for the escalators to the intermediate level is beyond these.

The steps to the intermediate level are on the right-hand (south) side before the passage turns right towards the Argyle Street north entrance.

To Reach

From the Main Concourse

Follow the right-hand (west) side of the concourse beyond the shops and the police building. There are railings to your right with an information board in front of them. The gate line to platforms 11 - 15 is now to your left. Continue (south) to the escalators and steps to the lower level concourse. As you face these, the steps are to the right and the two escalators to your left. The left-hand escalator is normally the one you need.

If you use the steps, go down 14, 14 then 15 steps, going south, into the low level concourse.
