DESCRIBE ONLINE

From the Main Bridge

Taking either of the inner sets of the four steps from the main bridge, go down 11 then 12 steps, going east to platform level. We found no indication of which is the preferred side.

Before the Island Platform

As you go towards the island platform 5 and 6 there's a rail and billboard along the south side. The rail continues, with a gap beyond the billboard, to platform 4. Beyond this gap are two coin and card phone boxes, across the track of platform 5.

Along the middle of this area, going east from the map board beyond the foot of the steps from the concourse.

The Island Platform, from the West

A metal rail runs about ten metres along the edge of platform 6, rather more on platform 5. A gutter runs along each platform, about two metres from the edge. These subsequently join to form a single gutter along the island platform, beyond the end of the covered area.

The following features were noted Along the middle of the island platform.

  paper racks and bilboard

Beyond this the two gutters vere towards the middle of the island platform to become one gutter, slightly north of the middle. The island narrows beyond this point to become about two metres wide at the end.

Warning

There's a metal board across the platform. There is also a rail beyond this, most of the way across the island. The board is beside the front door of the train.

On platform 5, if you miss the rail you could go down concrete steps which are not for public access.

You should not use the rear door of the train arriving on platform 5, doors opening on your right. This last door restriction doesn't appear to apply to platform 6 on which the doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train.

Since all services are beyond the front of the trains, we suggest you arrange to be near the front of your train before arrival.
