From the Main Entrance to Each Platform

You can reach the forecourt:

You're now in the extension to the building.

If you need a ticket, continue forward into the original part of the building, the sales windows are in front of you. At the time of our survey, only the right-hand of these three windows was in use.

To Which Platform?

  To Platform 1, Northbound
To Platform 2, Southbound
To Platform 1, Northbound

Turn right, continue to the wall in front of you then turn left and continue to the end of the station subway. Turn left, go up two flights of steps then turn left again and go up a slight slope onto the platform. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

GO TO END

To Platform 2, Southbound

Turn left, continue to the wall in front of you then turn right and go up two flights of steps. Turn right at the top, continue through the door in front of you then turn left onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of longer trains and about in the middle of shorter ones.

GO TO END

From Montgomery Street to Platform 1, Northbound

The foot of the ramp is on the right-hand side of the subway as you move away from New Street. If you came from Cochrane Street, go under Harbour Road then locate the foot of the ramp on your left.

Go up the first ramp, there's a hand rail along the right-hand side. You pass a series of windows and blank doors in the walls to either side. Note there's an electrical stanchion in the path before you reach the top.

At the top, turn left (180 degrees) and continue up the ramp. Turn right at the top, onto the end of the platform. We believe you're behind the rear of the train. We suggest you turn left and continue to the building on your left.

GO TO END

From the Forecourt to Platform 2, Southbound

As you face the station building, turn left then take the turning right. You leave the forecourt going up the slope, the windows of the station building are on your right.

Turn left and continue to the top of the first ramp. Turn right, pass the building on your right then turn right again. Continue up the second ramp then continue onto the platform. You're at the front of longer trains and before the front of shorter ones. We suggest you continue to the building on your right.
