From Platform 2

The exit to the concourse is via a wide gap in the building into which the walls curve towards the gate line. The steps to the bridge are on your right, just after you've gone up the slight slope from the platform, into this exit.

To find the lift, go along the platform from the exit, towards the front of the train. You'll find the lift shaft jutting out into the platform. You need to go round this to find the lift door. See the lifts page for details.
