PLATFORM 1, SOUTHBOUND

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is a separate platform along the southeast side of the station serving southbound trains towards Dundee and beyond.

The platform curves to your right as you go from the northeast end, though for convenience we'll assume it runs northeast/southwest throughout.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of this platform. Note that there's a drop down beyond the gravelled area along the southeast side of some sections of this platform.

To Reach

There is stairs and lift access to this platform from the ticket office and there is single step access from the car park.

From the Car Park

You leave the pavement, going northwest through normally open metal gates. The station building is to your left, whilst to your right is a rail guarding an area not for public use.

Note that there's a single step onto the pavement from the car park and we found no dropped kerb during our survey.
