Overview

This occupies a rectangle jutting from the northwest side of the subway. Thereís an entrance/exit in the southeast and northeast sides of this space. Each is divided into two by a pillar, we understand youíre to keep left.

The area outside the gates follows the two sides of the rectangle, around the gate line which begins running northeast with entrances before turning northwest with a Wide Aisle entrance followed by exits. The ticket machines are on the southwest side, whilst the sales windows are at an angle to these, we call this the west side.
