FIND A PLATFORM FROM AN ENTRANCE

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There's level access from street level into the Underground Concourse, then lift, escalator and stairs access to each platform. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

At the time of our survey, there was no clear pattern to the order of automatic entrance/exit gates, however we did find that if you use the Wide Aisle gates at the ends of the gate line, the left-hand one was the one you needed.

Through the Gates

As you come into the Underground Concourse from the pavement, the ticket sales windows are on your left and the gate line is in front of you, with the Wide Aisle entrance at the left-hand end, go through the gates.

If you come into the Underground Concourse from the Mainline station, turn right. The ticket sales windows are on your left and the gate line is in front of you, with the Wide Aisle entrance at the left-hand end, go through the gates.

Continue, through one of the six gaps in front of you, onto the bridge.

To Platform 1, Westbound

Turn right, before you reach the wall in front of you, you pass the escalators then the steps to your right, whilst the lift is to your left.

Via the Escalator

Turn right, the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need. Go down to platform level then turn right onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Continue to the wall then turn right. You go down three flights of steps, separated by wide landings, to platform level. Follow the left-hand side, which curves round to your right, onto the platform. We believe you're near the front of the train.

Via the Lift

Continue to the wall then turn left, into a short passage. The lift is in front of you with the call button to your right of the door. Go down to platform level, leave via the same door then turn right and continue onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.
