As you move from the front of the train, you pass what we believe was a former waiting room, before you pass a series of benches then the steps to the intermediate level. The lift is in the waiting room beyond the steps. There's a help point on the wall before the bench nearest the top of the steps.

We believe the steps to the intermediate level will be about in the middle of the train at either platform.

On platform 2, westbound, the doors towards the lift are beside the front of three car trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

On platform 3, eastbound, we believe the doors to the lift may be behind the rear of three car trains and beside the rear half of longer ones.

As you move from the rear of trains on platform 2, or front of those on platform 3, you pass the waiting room and kiosk, the steps to the intermediate level before you reach the next building housing the lift.
