Are there any landmarks or distinct colours that can be seen from both angles to identify the link. A road sign maybe, or a striking looking building?? Just something that suggests that we're in the same area. They don't even have to be seen in the same shot. Just a shot or two of the nearby landmarks to precede each stairway shot, suggesting a connection.

Or perhaps you have a shoot looking down from the stairway which is similar to a shot you have a looking up.

I don't know exactly what you're editing but my instinct would be not to try to be too literal. Is it vital that every viewer picks up the link, or can it be subtle enough that some will and some won't without it actually affecting the narrative?
