Describe Online


This is generally a rectangular space which is divided into two parts by the U-shaped gateline which juts in from the south.

We understand this station is scheduled for redevelopment in the near future, which should ease traffic through what is currently a confined space.

The ticket sales facilities and entrance gates are on the east side of the concourse, whilst the exits tend to be along the north and west.

See the Environs page for details of entrances and exits to this station.
