THE CONCOURSE

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

The area outside the gates is an irregular-shaped area with steps from exits 1 to 3 at the east side, exit 4 in the south and exits 5 and 6 from the west. The ticket sales windows are on the northwest side and the gate line cuts across the northeast side.

The area inside the gates is an irregular-shaped area which bridges the District/Circle Line tracks. The gate line runs along the southwest side with steps and lift, towards platform 1, westbound towards the right as you enter and those for platform 2, to the left. The escalators towards the interchange level leave southwards, from a point beyond (east of) the steps and lift to platform 1, (at the east end of this area).
