Describe Online

Overview

There's a waiting area about in the middle of the platform which has two sets of automatic doors. the set nearer the rear of the train leads to the escalators, whilst the other set is nearer the lift and stairs. There is a walkway between the two sections of the waiting area.

There's tactile paving along the edge of this platform.

To Reach

Via the Escalator

The escalators to platform 1, eastbound, are on the right-hand side of the concourse as you come in via the main entrance, beyond the ticket sales windows and lift, the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need. At platform level, turn left and go through the automatic doors onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

Via the Lift

The lift is on the right-hand side of the concourse, as you come in via the main entrance, beyond the ticket sales windows. The call button is to your right as you face the door. Note that there's a pillar in the passage, outside the door to this lift.

Go up to platform level, leave via the other set of doors, turn left and continue through the automatic doors onto the platform. We believe you're about in the middle of the train.

Via the Stairs

The stairs to this platform leave from the far side of the south section of the concourse. We suggest you go beyond the ticket sales windows and lift on your right, then turn left. You cross the passage leading to the westbound, platform 2 then follow the wall in front of you, left then right to the opening to the foot of the stairs. Note that there are pillars, one outside the lift and two more in the opening. The stairs start at an angle (northwest. There's tactile flooring at the foot and top of these stairs.

You go up seven steps, going northwest, turn left (southwest) and go up seven steps, going southwest. turn left (east), go up seven steps, going east then turn left (northwest) and go up seven steps, going northwest. turn left (south), go up seven steps, going south, turn left (northeast) and go up seven steps, going northeast, to platform level. You're in the south section of the waiting area.

Veer left (north), continue over a bridge with a hand rail to each side, over the passage, then turn left (east) and continue through the automatic doors, onto the platform. We believe you're about in the middle of the train.
