Overview

The refurbishment of this station has provided a new, south entrance from Merkland Court, plus stairs and lift access to the mainline platforms. There is still only escalator access to the Subway. There is tactile paving along the edge of all platforms in this station.

The gates to the Subway have been moved so as to face the escalators for each circle.

For the Subway

From the Main Entrance

Continue, past the two doors on your right. The first two ticket sales windows are for the Subway.

From the South Entrance

As you continue from the entrance, you pass the gates to the inner then outer circle, beyond which the barrier turns right towards the main entrance. If you continue, across the concourse from here, the ticket sales windows are in front of you, with the right-hand two windows (those nearer the main entrance), being for the Subway.

Having got your ticket, cross the concourse, turn right and follow the barrier to your left towards the gates. You pass the gates to the outer circle before you reach those for the inner.

For the Outer Circle

You go through the gates nearer the ticket sales windows. Go through the gates and continue to the escalators in front of you. The left-hand escalator is normally the one you need. Go down to subway level and follow the wall on your left which juts out then veers left again along the platform, you're near the rear of the train.

For the Inner Circle

You go through the further set of gates from the ticket sales windows. There are four automatic gates, the first of which is a disabled access gate. Go through the gates and continue forward to the escalators. The right-hand escalator is normally the one you need. Go down to subway level and follow the wall on your right which juts out then veers right again, along the platform, you're near the front of the train.

The first gap on your right leads to the stairs. Note that there's a pillar outside the door to the lift as you go into the passage and there are two pillars across the gap leading to the stairs.

There are six flights of seven steps between concourse and platform level. Having entered the gap from the concourse, the foot of the stairs is to your right leading away at about 1:30. Go up this flight then continue, following to your left, up five more flights, to platform level.
