The Platforms

Describe Online

Overview

There are seven platforms, numbered 1 - 7 from east to west.

Platform 1 is a separate platform along the east side of the station. The main features on this platform are the Lost Property and Station Manager's Offices.

Platforms 2 - 3, 4 - 5 and 6 - 7 are island platforms with few features of interest.

There was no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms at the time of our survey, though this may be introduced as part of the station refurbishment.

Note that tracks 1 - 4 jut into the concourse beyond tracks 5 - 7, so be careful when leaving the higher number platforms.

The end of the canopy is taken as the effective end of the platform, except for 12 car trains which extend beyond this.

Platform 1, from the North Tracks 1 - 2 come back as far as 3 - 4, so 5 - 7 start south of the rest.
