Overview

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of either platform.

There are step-free exits from either platform and stairs access between the platforms via the footbridge.

We'll describe the route via the footbridge and the step-free route via the road bridge. If you're going via the road bridge, we'll assume you leave via the exits nearest to this bridge. If you leave via another exit, then you just have a bit further to go.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Northbound
From Platform 2, Southbound

From Platform 1, Northbound

As you move from the rear of the train, you pass a wooden building, the path to Station Road, the main building then a row of bollards before you reach the foot of the stairs to the bridge. Note that the right-hand side of these stairs is in line with the pillars along the middle of the platform.

The Step-Free Route

Turn left, between the two buildings and continue, through normally open gates, onto Station Road. Turn left, continue up the slight slope then take the turning left into St Mary's Street. Continue, over the bridge then take the turning left into Huntingdon Street. Go down the slight slope and go through the normally open gate, just before the building, onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END
