The Concourse

Describe Online


This is an irregular shaped space with the entrance on the west side and platform 2 along the east. The travel centre is on the north side, whilst the Pumpkin Cafe Bar is to the south.

The gate line cuts across at an angle, about northeast/southwest. The concourse extends north, behind the travel centre including some features of interest and an alternative access to platform 2 which is normally locked.
