PLATFORMS 9 AND 10

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

These platforms have separate entrances with features in between which effectively separate the two platforms. A row of round pillars, with sharp studs, about six metres apart runs along each platform. There is no tactile paving near either edge. The ends of tracks 10 and 11 are about 4 metres south of that for track 9.

The gate line extends across the beginning of the platforms, see details of the concourse for more information.
