This is a rectangular space, plus a passage leading west towards the escalator, lift and stairs to the westbound mainline platform. The concourse is divided into two sections by the barrier and gates to the Subway. This barrier surrounds the southeast section of the concourse leaving a T-shaped space outside the gates.
The area outside the gates runs west from the main entrance and south towards the new, south entrance. The ticket sales windows are on the north side, the stairs, lifts and escalators to the mainline platforms are towards the northwest, whilst the gates to the Subway lead east. For convenience, we'll call the section leading west from the main entrance the north section and that leading from the south entrance the south section.
The area inside the gates is a rectangular space with the escalators to the Subway on the east side and the gates on the west.
You go through a set of automatic doors onto tactile flooring, up a slight slope, then through another set of automatic doors, into the concourse.
