FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM

Describe Online

Overview

You can leave the platforms via escalator or lift. The lifts are near the front of eastbound (rear of westbound) trains, whilst the exit escalators are near the middle of the platforms.

The doors will open on your right as you face the front of the train. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

Via Which Route?

  Via the Lifts
Via Escalators

Via the Lifts

From platform 1, westbound, go into the passage nearest the rear of the platform and find the lifts on your left.

From platform 2, eastbound, go into the passage nearest the front of the platform and find the lifts on your right.

The call button (Up) is between the two lifts, go up to Level 0, ticket hall, leave via the other doors and continue through the exit gates in front of you, into the Walkway.

For Terminal 1

Turn right and follow the left-hand side of the walkway. This walkway includes travellators, the left-hand travellator is normally the one you need. You can either use the travellator or walk along the middle of the walkway.

At the end of the travellator, the walkway veers right towards the lifts, in front of you. The call button (Up) is between the two lifts. Note that according to these lifts, you're at Level -1, Underground, as opposed to Level 0 from the lifts from the platforms.

Details of the Terminal lie beyond the scope of this survey.
