From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Westbound
From Platform 2, Eastbound

From Platform 1, Westbound

Via the Ramp

The path leaves the platform beside the front of shorter trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass the ticket office, then the shelter before you reach the turning left.

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass a stanchion in the middle of the platform, then three posts on your right before you reach the turning right.

Go up this ramp onto Burnbank Road, from here you can turn right for the car park or left towards Clydesdale Street.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Get off the train, cross the platform, turn left then follow the right-hand side. If you come from the front of the train, you'll pass the shelter, then the ticket office before you reach the recess to the steps. Move right then go up the three flights of steps in front of you, onto Clydesdale Street. Note that the first landing on these steps is shorter than the second.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

Via the Ramp

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter then the building before the gap to the ramp.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you'll find the gap to the ramp before you reach the building.

Go up the ramp, away from the front of the train. At the top, you can turn right (180 degrees) and continue to Clydesdale Street.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

The steps to the bridge are just beyond the front of the train. As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass the gap to the ramp, the building then shelter before you reach the recess in front of the steps.

Continue, up two steps then two flights of steps, onto the bridge. Note that the first landing is shorter than the second one.

Turn right at the top, then take the turning left, onto Clydesdale Street.
