Overview

You can either use the bridge or subway, note that there is no step-free access to the westbound, platform 1.

The ticket sales windows in the westbound concourse are only open during peak morning hours. If you need to buy a ticket, we suggest you use the sales windows in the eastbound concourse, which are at the far end of the right-hand wall as you enter via the west entrance.

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