THE CONCOURSE

Describe Online

Overview

This is a complex shape which incorporates the original station concourse beside Bridge Road and the extension which leads away southwest.

The entrances/exits are on the south/southeast side, whilst the gate line runs across the original entrance/exits before turning northwest across the extension.

The area inside the gates incorporates the original bridge over the tracks, which has been extended northwest to accommodate lifts to each platform. The former route from platform 1, towards the Stadium, is now included in this area.

Two rows of pillars run northeast/southwest through the concourse. Note the two gaps in the new gate line which align with these pillars.
