PLATFORM 1, EASTBOUND
This is a separate platform running along the north side of the station at level 2. The entrances/exits from the bridge and subway are at the east end, near to escalators to the Northern Line, which were under repair at the time of our survey.
Customers wishing to change to the westbound platforms 2 - 6 are asked to use the subway, whilst those arriving from those platforms are asked to use the bridge.
There is no tactile paving along the edge of this platform.
