Overview

The lifts in this station connect each platform to the bridge. There are clear announcements and all buttons within each lift are on the south side, i.e. to your left as you enter from the bridge or the platform, except for platforms 4 - 5, where, since this lift faces in the opposite direction to the others, the buttons are to your right as you enter from this platform.

Inside the Lifts

All internal buttons are embossed and Brailled and, listed from the top are:

There's another alarm button at low level, near the floor.

Call Buttons

The CALL button (square, Brailled) is located on a metal plate which also includes a smaller, round INTERCOM button. The INTERCOM button is always to the left of the CALL button, though the plates aren't always mounted on the same side of the lift doors. The positions of CALL buttons relative to lift doors are as follows:

LIFT DESTINATION AT BRIDGE LEVEL AT PLATFORM LEVEL
Platform 1 left left
Platform 2 - 3 right right
Platform 4 - 5 left right (door faces west)
Platform 6 right right

Note that the door on platform 4 - 5 faces west, whilst all other lift doors face east.
