You can reach the platforms via escalator or lift. The lifts are near the front of eastbound (rear of westbound) trains, whilst the entrance escalators bring you near the front of westbound (rear of eastbound) trains.

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

Via the Lifts

Note that the lifts from Terminal 1 indicate Level -1 (the Walkway) as the Underground level, whilst the lifts in the Underground station indicate the Walkway as Level 0, whilst Level -1 is platform level.

From Terminal 1

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

Locate the lifts to the Underground. The call buttons are between the lifts, go down to Level -1, Underground and continue along the walkway. The walkway veers right before you pass the passage from the escalators, on your left. Continue towards the travellator. Note that the right-hand travellator, towards the lifts, extends beyond the passage.

You can either use the travellator or walk along the middle of the walkway. Beyond the end of the travellator, you pass the passage towards buses, coaches, way out and toilets (details of which lie beyond the scope of this survey), before you reach the exit gates from the lifts, on your left. The entrance gates are beyond these.

Turn left, through the gates then follow the passage, which turns left, then find the lifts on your left.

The call button (Down) is between the lifts, go down to Level -1, platform level and leave via the other doors. Platform 1 westbound is to your left, we believe you're near the rear of the train. Platform 2, eastbound is to your right, we believe you're near the front.
