The station is west of Townend Road (north/south) on a raised viaduct running approximately east/west between Station road (east), Station Street (west) to the south and Bank End Road (east/west) to the north.
A subway runs north/south, giving steep, ramp access to each platform. Meadowbank Street runs under the tracks to the west of this, whilst College Street (north/south) lies to the east, between the station and Townend Road. Both College and Meadowbank streets seemed to be blocked to traffic at the time of our survey.
Townend Road leads north from a roundabout in the Glasgow/Helensburgh road (east/west), from which Church Street leads south towards the town centre.
There are two entrances/exits to this station, one at each end of the subway.
From Bank End Road, there’s a metal railing along the middle of the pavement, outside the entrance. You go up 13 steps, going south, into the subway.
There is step-free access from Station Road/Station Street into the south end of the subway.
We found no pedestrian controlled crossings during our survey.
Station Road/Station Street seemed quiet streets at the time of our survey.
Bank End Road also seemed to be a relatively quiet street at the time of our survey. Note, the taxi rank is on the north side of this road, opposite the station exit.
We found no bus stops during our survey.
Although there appears to be free car parking in Station Road, Station Street and Bank End Road, this seemed to be a relatively featureless area of the town. We understand the town centre lies south of the station, off Church Street, details of which lie beyond the scope of this survey.
