Find an exit from a Platform

Describe Online

Overview

We describe routes to the main entrance and the Victoria Viaduct from platforms 1 - 3, however we'll only give details of how to reach the main entrance from platforms 4 - 8 as it's easy to reach the city centre via the local street network. See the Environs page for details.

Note, there was no tactile paving near the edge of any platforms at the time of our survey.

h2>From Platforms 1 - 3

Via the Main Entrance

From Platform 1

The doors will open on your right as you face the front of the train. Move onto platform 3 and locate either the ramp or steps to the bridge.

From Platform 2

The doors may open on either side of the train. Continue, beyond the front of the train. If you left via the left-hand doors, you're on platform 1, tirn right, beyond the end of platform 2, then left along platform 3 and locate either the ramp or steps to the bridge.

From Platform 3

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. Locate either the steps or ramp to the bridge, from about the middle of the platform.

Cross the bridge, you're in the concourse. If you used the ramp, turn left (180 degrees and follow the station wall till you locate the automatic doors on your right. If you used the steps, turn right, continue to the station wall then turn left and locate the automatic doors on your right. Go through the doors and continue, through the three sections, to the exit.

From Platforms 4 - 8

From platforms 4, 5 and 7

The doors will open to your left (platforms 4 and 5) or right (platform 7) as you face the front of the train.

Move towards the middle of the concourse and go through the gap in the rail. Continue, through the automatic doors and the three sections to the exit.

From Platform 6

The doors will open on your right as you face the front of the train.

Move beyond the front of the train and follow the right-hand wall, into the concourse and locate the automatic doors on your right. Go through the doors and continue, through the three sections, to the exit

From Platform 8

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train.

Move beyond the front of the train. Continue, following the wall on your left, into the concourse and locate the automatic doors on your left. Go through the doors and continue, through the three sections, to the exit.

To the Victoria Viaduct Exit

We believe this only makes sense from platforms 1 - 3. From other platforms, you may as well leave fia the main entrance and, if necessary, follow the street network to reach the city centre.

Move, beyond the front of the train, and locate the gap before the foot of the ramp from either platform 1 or 3. The pavement is along the right-hand side, continue up the ramp to the Victoria Viaduct.
