Platforms 12 - 15

Describe Online

Overview

The common entrance to platforms 12, 13, 14 and 15 is off the north side of the corridor opposite the west edge of the main concourse. Both walls retreat to make a broader way, with a blank door in the north facing wall to your right. 5 metres from the corridor is a row of posts marking the top of a broad ramp divided into 5 lanes by north-south railings. At the bottom of the ramp are 5 doors. At the time of our survey only 2 of these were open, but this obviously changes depending on the time of the arrival or departure of trains. Without sight, it is not obvious from the top of the ramp which doors are open and which closed. Behind the doors is an open space with railings both sides. The northern side has a railing in the centre across the ends of tracks 13 and 14 with gaps either side leading down railed ramps to island platforms, platforms 12 and 13 on the right, platforms 14 and 15 on the left.

There is tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

Platforms 12 and 13

At the bottom of the right-hand ramp from the entrance to platforms 12 - 15, platform 12 is to the right, platform 13 straight ahead. Platform 12 extends back beside the ramp for some way, but this part is not for public access.
