Platform 1, EASTBOUND
This is an island platform along the north side of the station with platform 1 along the south side of the island. This platform serves eastbound trains towards Glasgow Queen Street, Airdrie and Springburn. From December 2010, trains will continue beyond Airdrie to Edinburgh Waverley.
There is tactile paving along the edge of platform 1. Note that the north side of the platform is beside an unused track bed to which there is an unguarded drop with no tactile paving. Be careful if you go north of the central building! There are, however, bike lockers on this unused platform a few metres west of the top of the ramp.
From the subway, you go up a steep ramp, going east, onto the middle of the island platform, west of the ticket office building. the door to the ticket office is in front of you, whilst platform 1 is to your right (south). There's a hand rail to each side of this ramp.
