Describe Online

Overview

This is a separate platform along the west side of the station serving northbound trains towards Bank and (sometines) Tower Gateway. There's tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

You can reach this platform via steps from the Ticket Hall or escalator/lift from the shopping mall.

Via the Steps

You go up 16 then 16 steps, going north. You're near the front (north) end of the platform.

Via the Escalator

See the Environs page for more details. Note that we found no escalator between Level -1 and Level 0 in the West Mall.

From Level 0 of the West Mall, the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need. Go up to level 1 and continue through the doors in front of you (there's a push button to your left of the doors) onto the platform.

Via the Lift

Leave the lift at Level 1, turn left and continue through the automatic door in front of you. Turn right then go through the doors (there's a push button to your left of the doors) onto the platform.

Via the Escalator

Leave the platform via the doors in the middle, there's a push button to your right of the doors. The escalators are in front of you. The outer escalators go up to a sports facility, details of which lie beyond the scope of this survey. Of the middle (downward) escalators, the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need, go down to Level 0 of the West Mall. Note we found no escalators between Level 0 and Level -1 within the West Mall.

Via the Lift

Leave the platform via the doors in the middle, there's a push button to your right of the doors. Turn left, go through the automatic door in front of you then find the lift on your right. The call buttons (Up and Down) are to your right (north) of the door.
