PLATFORM 2, WESTBOUND
This is a separate platform along the south side of the station, between the tracks and the main car park. There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.
The ticket office is about in the middle, whilst the steps to the bridge are towards the east end.
There is level access from the ticket office.
South of the ticket office, there’s a raised paved area surrounded by car park on three sides. There’s a railing along the south side and steps at each end. From the east, you go up six steps, going west. You pass a gap through to the platform before the wall of the ticket office. The door to the ticket office is on your right after a few metres.
From the west you go up five steps, going east. You pass a gap through to the platform before you reach the wall to the waiting room. Continue, beyond this to locate the door to the ticket office. The door is on your left, after a few metres.
There’s tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
The foot of the ramp is opposite the foot of the steps down west from outside the ticket office. Continue (west), passing billboards and railings on your right, turn left (south) then right (west), continue to the top of the slope. Turn right (180 degrees, east) and continue up the ramp then turn left (north) onto the platform.
You go down 15 steps, plus an additional small step to platform level. Continue beyond the end of the railings on your right before moving right onto the platform, the tactile paving beyond the foot of the steps indicates the start of the gap. You're behind the rear of the train.
