Overview

Platform 1, although we call it eastbound, is actually bi-directional.

The most straightforward route between platforms is via the bridge. The step-free route between the platforms involves a significant detour through the local road network, see the Environs page for details.

The doors will open as follows, as you face the front of the train:

There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1
From Platform 2

From Platform 1

Get off the train, turn right and continue to the steps to the bridge, which are apparently in the middle of the platform. I say "apparently" as the platform passes to the right of the steps, whilst the bit to the left goes down a slope into a walkway which is not for public use. Beware, also, that there's no tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

Having found the steps, go up a flight of steps, turn right then go up six steps onto the bridge. Cross the slightly hump backed bridge, then go down six steps before turning right and going down a flight of steps onto platform 2. You're behind the rear of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2

We believe only westbound trains use this platform.

Turn towards the rear of the train and follow the right-hand side till you reach the steps to the bridge, in front of you. Go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up six steps. Continue, over the slightly hump backed bridge, down six steps before turning left and going down a flight of steps onto platform 1. Continue forward from here to be beside the train.
