This is a large area with the terminus platforms (1 to 6) leading west and platform 8 to the south. The north end of this area, including platforms 1 to 3, is at a lower level such that these platforms are reached via a slope or steps (directly onto platform 2, though this can be reached from platform 3).

Tracks 3 and 4 start west of those for the other platforms in this area.

Platform 8 continues east, behind the south edge of the concourse.
