Change Platforms

Describe Online

Overview

There is step-free access from each platform to Hamilton Road. There is step-free access from platform 1 to Motherwell Road, but stairs-only access from platform 2 to this road. There is stairs access between platforms via the bridge.

We'll therefore give directions between platforms via the bridge and via Hamilton Road.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of either platform.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Westbound
From Platform 2, Eastbound

From Platform 1, Westbound

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the building to your right before turning right to the exit, or continuing to the steps to the bridge which are in front of you.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass the steps to the bridge, note that there is a barrier behind these steps. Continue beyond the foot of the steps then either turn back for the steps or take the turning left for the exit.

Via the Bridge

You go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps then turn left and go down another flight onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

Via Hamilton Road

Turn right and continue, down the hill to the main road. Turn right, under the rail bridge then take the turning right and follow the right-hand side up the hill.

You pass the steps up to your right before you reach the step-free path to the platform. On reaching the platform, we believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

As you go from the front of the train, you find the pillars supporting the bridge, note you can walk underneath the steps, be careful! Continue, beyond the foot of the steps then either turn back for the steps or take the turning right for the exit.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass the steps leading down to the car park before the shelter. The step-free exit is the turning left just beyond this. You can either Take this turning or continue to the steps to the bridge, in front of you.

Via the Bridge

Go up a flight of steps, turn right then go up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps then turn right and go down another flight onto platform 1. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

GO TO END

Via Hamilton Road

Continue to the end of the path, turn left and continue down the hill, to the main road. Turn left, under the rail bridge then take the turning left and continue up the hill. You pass the station building on your left before the turning onto the platform. Turn left and continue beyond the building onto the platform, we believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

Note that the path from Hamilton Road continues beyond the entrance, down the hill, to Motherwell Road.
