DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This description concerns three levels:

There are two separate platforms, platform A, southbound lies east of platform B, northbound. A bridge at Level -1 joins these platforms. There is lift, stairs and escalator access between the concourse and platforms. From the concourse, you can go down two sets of escalators/stairs or the lift onto platform A, whilst for platform B, you cross the bridge at Level -1 and use the lift, stairs or escalators to reach the platform.

You go through the gates facing north, towards the escalators. There are three escalators, between Level 0 and -1, in general the left-hand one is the one you need.

Alternatively, there are steps between each level.

There’s a lift to your left (west) of the escalators with the call button (down only) to your right (east) of the door at wheelchair height, with a speaker grill above this.

Inside the lift, the buttons are to your right as you enter with 0, -1 and -2 from top to bottom.
