THE BRIDGE

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

The bridge is divided into two sections, which we'll call the west and east bridge.

The west bridge is an ornate, curved structure between platforms 2 and 3 – 8. The steps start leading north, then curve towards the bridge itself, which runs east/west. The whole structure is almost semi-circular, with the two arms facing south along the platform.

The lifts are to the rear (north) of this structure, with ramps leading directly onto the bridge.

The east bridge leads east, from a point adjacent to the bottom of the first set of steps towards platforms 3 – 8, onto platforms 9 – 10.

All steps are divided into two sets by central rails. At the time of our survey it wasn’t clear which side is preferred.
