PLATFORM 1, EASTBOUND

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is a separate platform along the north side of the station serving eastbound trains towards Edinburgh. There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

The main waiting room and gated exit are about in the middle of the platform, just west of the bridge.

To Reach

There’s level access from the forecourt plus lift and stairs access from Hermiston Gait and platform 2 via the bridge.

There's a wide aisle gate at the right-hand end of the gate line. When the gates are closed, staff are available beyond the right-hand end of the gate line.

Go through the gates into the waiting area and continue through the automatic doors, which were open at the time of our survey, onto the platform, about in the middle.
