Location

The station is on the south side of a forecourt which is at the south end of Station Road, which leads south for about 150 metres from Queens Road (east) and Countess Abbey road (west). Queens Road runs west from High Street (north/south). The traffic on High Street is one way (south) whilst that on Queens and Countess Abbey roads is also one way (west).

Entrances and Exits

There are two level entrances/exits to this station:

Local Road Crossings

We found no pedestrian controlled crossings within the scope of this survey. At the time of our survey, Station Road seemed to be a quiet road serving the taxi rank and nearby parking for the station. High Street, Queens Road and Countess Abbey Road seemed to be part of a major giratory system around the town centre.

Local Buses

We found one bus stop on the south side of Queens Road. We understand this serves buses to North Berwick and Edinburgh, plus an Asda bus service.

We understand there's a bus stop on the east side of High Street, though this was not in sight and we therefore presume lies beyond the scope of this survey.

Local Features

The Forecourt

The forecourt includes a taxi turning circle, with the entrance to the car park leading east from a point north of this. At the time of our survey, the middle of the turning circle was occupied by Network Rail vans.
