THE ISLAND PLATFORM

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is an island platform which leads north from the foot of the stairs, with platform 1, northbound towards Glasgow Central, lying west of platform 2, towards Cathcart, Neilston or Newton. The hand rails extend a short distance from the foot of the stairs. There is no tactile paving along either edge of this platform.

There’s a row of pillars, supporting Albert Road, between the foot of the stairs and the ticket office, beyond which is the covered seating area. This platform curves left towards Queens Park Station, as you move away from the stairs, though for convenience we’ll describe features as if you continued north.

To Reach

From street level, you go down 13 then 14 steps, going north, onto the platform. You're behind the rear of northbound and before the front of southbound trains. See the Environs page for details of the entrance to this station.
