FIND A PLATFORM FROM AN ENTRANCE
Although there is step-free access from Station Road/Station Street to each platform, some users may find the ramps from the subway a bit steep.
There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform. Note, however, that the other side of the island platform 1 has no tactile paving, leaving a drop onto a disused track bed.
You go up a slight slope from the pavement into the subway. The first turning right is the ramp to platforms 2 - 3, westbound, whilst the second is the ramp to platform 1, eastbound. Note that there are steps down to Bank End Road beyond this second turning.
There's a metal rail along the pavement outside this entrance. You go up a flight of steps into the subway. The first turning left is the ramp to platform 1, eastbound, whilst the second is the ramp to platforms 2 - 3, westbound. Note that there's a slight slope down to the pavement beyond this second turning.
Go up the ramp. At the top, the push door into the ticket office is in front of you. Turn right for the platform, we believe you're near the rear of the train.
Note that, if you turn left at the top of the ramp, you're facing a disused track bed, there is no tactile paving before the edge of this unused section of the platform.
Go up the ramp, platform 2 is to your left whilst platform 3 is to your right. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.
HOW DO I…?
