The doors will open on your right as you face the front of the train.

Note that the front section of platform 1 is very narrow and we suggest you don't travel in the front carriage of westbound trains if you plan to get out at this station.

There are two sets of stairs down from the middle of the island platform 1 - 2, towards the rear of the westbound, (front of the eastbound) trains. Whichever you choose, you go down two flights of stairs into a passage, which is the intermediate level of the station. Turn away from the wall, at the foot of the stairs and follow the passage to the end then turn right. Continue forwards to the escalators and take the left hand escalator.
