Location

The station is on the northeast side of Torrance Road (northwest/southeast) about 100 metres northwest of West Mains Road (northeast/southwest). This latter is a major road, whilst Torrance Road seemed to be a relatively quiet side street at the time of our survey.

Entrances and Exits

There are three entrances/exits to this station, each giving level access onto the single platform:

Via the Ticket Office

You go into the ticket office, via automatic doors, from Torrance Road facing northeast, the push button is to your left of the doors. The sales window, with variable height counter and induction loop, is to your left, whilst the door to the platform is in front of you, with the push button to your left of the doors. Note that these doors open into the ticket office.

Directly onto the Platform

The gap between the kiosk and ticket office buildings is divided into two sections by a large information board. To your right (southeast) of this board, you'd manoeuvre left then right between barriers before continuing forward onto the platform. The left-hand (northwest) section of this gap leads straight onto the platform.

From the Car Park

There's a gap in the fence, towards the northwest end of the disabled persons parking bays. This leads directly onto the platform, probably beyond the front of the train.

Local Road Crossings

We found no pedestrian controlled crossings during our survey.

There is a level crossing of Torrance Road indicated by tactile paving a few metres northwest of the entrance into the ticket office. Note that there is metal fencing along the kerb to the southeast of this crossing, on each side of Torrance Road, which continues to the junction with West Mains Road.
