DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

Although the track runs northeast, the wall veers west from a point towards the front of the train into the area containing the lift and steps to the concourse, plus the escalators and steps to the interchange level. The wall resumes southwest, passing beside the escalators before returning southeast, beyond the foot of the steps from the concourse. It then continues southwest, along the platform.
