THE PLATFORMS

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There are three platforms, numbered 1 to 3 from the north. Platform 1 is a separate platform along the north side of the station, whilst platforms 2 - 3 are an island platform.

At the time of our survey, there was no tactile paving along the edge of these platforms, though we understand they are to be refurbished. We presume this will include the provision of tactile paving along the edge of all platforms in this station.

Platform 1

To Reach

There is level access to this platform from the ticket office, through the concourse. There is also level access from the path from the ferry terminal.

From the West

There are five pillars along the middle of the platform which will be removed, as will the buildings.

Platforms 2 - 3

To Reach

There is level access to these platforms from the concourse. As you leave the ticket office,, turn immediately right for this island platform. Platform 2 is to your left, whilst platform 3 is to your right. Note that track 3 begins in line with the station building.

From the West

All features are along the middle, we understand some of these will be removed during the demolision.
