From Which Entrance?

  From the Northeast Entrance
From the Southwest Entrance
From the Northwest Entrance
Via the Ramp to Platform 2 - 3

From the Northeast Entrance

From the forecourt, go up the short ramp then through the automatic doors into the ticket office and turn right. As you continue forward from here, you pass the passage leading left towards platform 1, southbound, which is opposite the ticket sales window. Beyond this, near the end of the passage, are the stairs to platforms 2 - 3, eastbound going up to your left.

continue to the platforms.

From the Southwest Entrance

Note that this door is to be removed so that a unisex, accessible toilet can be installed. A new door will be located in the front (southeast side) of the building.

From the forecourt, go up the short, steep slope, through the push door into the ticket office and take the turning left. As you continue forward from here, you pass the passage leading left towards platform 1, southbound, which is opposite the ticket sales window. Beyond this, near the end of the passage, are the stairs to platforms 2 - 3, eastbound going up to your left.

continue to the platforms.

From the Northwest Entrance

From Arthurlie Street, between the rail bridge and bus stop, turn away from the road and go through the push door on your right, up a slight slope into the ticket office. As you continue forward, you pass the stairs to platforms 2 - 3, eastbound to your right. Continue under the tracks, the next turning right is the passage to the lift and stairs to platform 1, southbound, whilst the ticket sales window is opposite this.

Continue to the platforms.

Via the Ramp to Platform 2 - 3

From Arthurlie Street, between the rail bridge and bus stop, turn away from the road and go past the door on your right. From here, you can turn left for the ramp, or bypass the first section of the ramp by going up the 13 steps in front of you.

Via the Ramp

Turn left, continue to the top of this slope then turn right (180 degrees) and go to the top of this slope before turning left. The top of the steps is now behind you.

Via the Steps

Continue, up four, five then four steps.

Continue up the slope, turning right, then left and right again. At the top, the beginning of track 3 is to your left, whilst platform 2 is in front of you. We believe you're near the front of 2-4 car eastbound trains on platform 2. Turn left for platform 3, which will then be on your left. We found no 6 car stop sign on platform 2, but presume the front of these trains will be beside platform 3.

Alternatively, turn right from the top of the ramp for the waiting room. We noted a 2 and 4 car stop sign near the right-hand end of this platform, so if a southbound train is to leave from here, we suggest you turn right and continue to the waiting room.

GO TO END

To Which Platform?

  To Platform 1, Southbound
To Platforms 2 - 3, Eastbound

To Platform 1, Southbound

As you turn into the passage opposite the ticket sales window, you pass the foot of the steps to your left before you reach the lift.

Via the Lift

The call button is to your left of the door, go up to platform level and leave via the same door. Turn right, continue to the top of the steps, on your right then turn left and go through the automatic doors onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of southbound trains.

Note, we found a 2 and 4 car stop sign towards the right-hand end of the platform, so if an eastbound train is to leave from here, we suggest you turn right and continue to the end of the building, a lower wall with railings continues beyond the building.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

As you go into the passage opposite the ticket sales window, take the first turning left then go up a flight of steps. Turn left (180 degrees), go up another flight, left again (180 degrees), up another flight then left again (180 degrees) and up the final flight of steps to platform level. Continue, through the automatic doors, onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of southbound trains.

Note, we found a 2 and 4 car stop sign towards the right-hand end of the platform, so if an eastbound train is to leave from here, we suggest you turn right and continue to the end of the building, a lower wall with railings continues beyond the building.

GO TO END

To Platforms 2 - 3, Eastbound

Go into the short passage then up nine then 23 steps to platform level. Turn left (180 degrees), continue up the slight slope then turn right, through pull doors, onto the platform. We believe you're near the rear of eastbound trains on platform 2.

We noted a 2 and 4 car stop at the right-hand end of platform 2. If a southbound train leaves from this platform, we believe you're near the front of the train.

For platform 3, turn left from the door and continue, beyond the open area to your left, then the ramp from Arthurlie Street, before you reach the beginning of track three. Note, you're then on an island platform, with tactile paving to each side.
