THE METROLINK LEVEL
This area is divided into three sections: The bridge over the Metro Link tracks, giving access to lift, escalators and stairs to/from the platforms, the area at the foot of the steps/escalators from the platform level concourse and the level 1 concourse.
If you use the steps between the escalators from the platform level concourse, you go down 15 then 16 steps, going south.
The only lift serving this level from the platform level concourse is in the wall of the island, opposite the gate to platform 9, beside Thorntons. At level 1, you're on the bridge over the Metro Link tracks, opposite the steps from the arrivals platform.
This is a square area, containing:
|two sets of double doors, (open at the time of our survey) to Metro Link|
|open doors to buses, taxis and way out - the level 1 concourse|
This is a rectangular area with:
two sets of double doors separated by a pillar, from escalators and steps|

The left-hand doors, as you enter are opposite the steps, whilst the other set is opposite the escalator to the departures platform.
