PLATFORMS 4 - 7

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

The common entrance to platforms 4, 5, 6 and 7 is off the north side of the corridor opposite the eastern edge of the main concourse. Both walls recess to make a broader way, with a blank door in the left hand north facing wall. 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 in the centre is a Costa Coffee kiosk, and just before it the centre railings end, thus allowing access between the centre 3 lanes. The outer lanes, and either side of the kiosk, can be blocked by 4 doors. At the time of our survey only the second from the right was 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 kiosk is an open space with railings both sides. The northern side has a railing in the centre across the ends of tracks 5 and 6 with gaps either side leading down railed ramps to island platforms, platforms 4 and 5 on the right, platforms 6 and 7 on the left.

There is tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

Platforms 4 and 5

At the bottom of the right-hand ramp, platform 4 is to the right, platform 5 straight ahead. Platform 4 extends back beside the ramp for some way, but this part is not for public access.
