In this new area, lower the lift in front of you and continue forward, up the stairs in front. Go through the opening ahead then turn left to grab the red key. Continue forward, then turn right at the bottom of the stairs. Continue straight ahead, drop down to the lower level and enter the teleporter in front to arrive back at the room beyond the blue bars.
