THE EAST CONCOURSE
This is the main entrance to the station. The section of the building facing the road junction is curved so that four sets of steps at pavement level, converge into two at concourse level.
As you enter the station, the ticket sales facilities and entrance gates are to your left.
The escalators to the intermediate level leave (west) from the far right-hand side of this space, as you enter, though the concourse itself appears to be oriented northwest/southeast. As a result, when entering the station, you bear right then left, beyond the gate line. When leaving, you bear right from the top of the escalators towards the exit gates.
The lift between concourse and street level is in a short passage leading northeast before the foot of the steps, whilst the lift between concourse and platform level is in a passage leading north before the top of the escalators.
