Describe Online

To Reach

This single platform is reached via the glass entrance doors from the north side of the booking hall. You're near the west end of the platform.

General Information

The eastern section of this platform is an open island, with the bay platform to the south which is rarely used. There is good tactile paving along each side of this platform. Note the north side is the only regularly used platform, so it is bi-directional. At the time of our survey, trains stopped towards the west end, outside the station building.
