The Lower Level Platforms, 8 - 9

Overview

This section of the station consists of two separate platforms running east/west with platform 8 westbound lying south of platform 9 eastbound.

These platforms can be reached from the west, just inside the Dundas Street entrance, from the east via the entrance off North Hanover Street, or via lifts from platform 7.

The east and west entrances define the effective ends of the platforms, whilst the lifts are about in the middle. There is no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.
