A subway runs underneath the whole width of the station, with steps and lifts up to all platforms. Nearest to the front of the station is the island containing platforms 1, 2, and 3. Looking north on platform 3:

As well as the subway, a footbridge spans the whole of the station, though mysteriously it doesn't have any steps down to platform 3. From the eastern side of the footbridge, looking north, with platform 3 on the right and platform 4 on the left:
