Location

The station lies in a cutting (north/south) along the west side of an extensive car park, reached via Dalhousie Road (north). The station car park is adjacent (south of) another car park associated with the local college.

The station car park seemed very large, with 12 accessible parking bays and two electric vehicle charge points on the west side, south of a taxi drop-off point.

Entrances and Exits

There are two entrances/exits to this station:

From the Car Park

Continue (west) through a gap in the railings round the car park, onto a footpath (north/south), with a large bike rack in front of you. Turn right (north) for the college, left (south) for the station.

Turning left (south), you go down a ramp, with hand rails to each side. At the foot of this slope, a ramp continues (south) to the bridge, turn right (west) then left again (south).

Go down the ramp, going south. Turn right (west) at the bottom, across tactile paving, onto the platform.

From the Bridge

You could continue straight from the bottom of the first slope from the car park, up the ramp onto the bridge and turn right. The turning immediately to your left leads to steps (3 x 9), going down south onto the platform.

Continuing (west) you cross the station into a residential area that was under development at the time of our survey. Note, there is only one platform in this station.

Local Road Crossings

We found no pedestrian controlled road crossings within the scope of this survey. However, Dalhousie Road seemed to be a quiet, access road into the station and college car parks.

Local Buses

We found no bus stops within the scope of this survey.

Local Features

Except for the car parks, mentioned above, we found nothing of relevance during our survey.
