FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There is step-free access from the ticket office via the two exits to the forecourt and to Arthurlie Street. There is lift access from platform 1, southbound to the ticket office and stairs access from each platform. There is ramp access from platforms 2 - 3, eastbound to Arthurlie Street.

The doors will normally open on your left as you face the front of the train. However, we noted 2 and 4 car stops signs near the opposite ends of platforms 1 and 2 so, if an eastbound train stops at platform 1, or a southbound at platform 2, the doors will open on your right.

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

From Platform 1, Southbound

As you go from the front of southbound trains, you pass the metal wall of the bridge before you reach the station building, the automatic doors towards the ticket office are towards the far end of this building.

As you go from the rear of longer, southbound trains, you pass a lower wall with railings before you reach the station building. The automatic doors toward the ticket office are towards the near end of this building.

Go through the doors, the steps are in front of you, if you prefer the lift, turn right and locate the door on your left.

Via the Steps

Continue forward, down a flight of steps, turn right (180 degrees), down a flight of steps. Turn right (180 degrees), go down a flight of steps then turn right (180 degrees) and go down a flight of steps to ticket office level, then turn right.

The ticket sales window is in front of you. Take the turning left for the exit towards Arthurlie Street, or right for the forecourt.

Via the Lift

The call button is to your left of the door. Go down to ticket office level, leave via the same door then turn right. The ticket sales window is in front of you. Turn left for the exit towards Arthurlie Street or right for the forecourt.

For Arthrulie Street, continue along the passage, then through the pull door. Turn left and continue onto the pavement, the bus stop is to your right.

For the forecourt, the automatic doors are to your left, you go down a short ramp to street level. Note that the door to your right is to be removed so that a toilet can be installed. A new door will be included towards the right-hand end of the wall in front of you.

GO TO END

From Platforms 2 - 3

The ramp exit towards Arthurlie Street is just beyond the front of trains terminating at platform 3 and near the front of 2-4 car eastbound trains at platform 2. We found no 6 car stop sign on this platform, but presume the front of longer trains will be beside platform 3.

The stairs exit to the ticket office is near the rear of longer trains and behind the rear of shorter ones.

We noted a 2 and 4 car stop sign at the rear of platform 2. If a southbound train stops here, the stairs exit will be near the front of the train, whilst the ramp will be towards or behind the rear.
