THE ISLAND PLATFORM
This island platform curves from running almost east/west at the west end to about southeast/northwest towards the east. For simplicity, we'll refer to east and west as running along the platform. In this context, platform 1, serving trains towards Glasgow, lies north of platform 2.
This is a narrow platform, particularly to each side of the ticket office, though there is tactile paving near each edge.
The platform is reached via the bridge, at the west end of the station or the subway, near the east.
The new bridge now provides an accessible route from Churchill Drive to the south and the Gartnavel site to the north of the station.
The subway provides stairs access from the Gartnavel Hospital site or private housing to the north of the station.
All features are in the middle of the platform unless stated otherwise.
