PLATFORM 1, NORTHBOUND
This is a separate platform along the west side of the station serving trains towards Kilwinning, Paisley and Glasgow. There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.
This platform can be reached via stairs from the subway in the station building or via the ramp from Montgomery Street.
You go up ten then ten steps, going south. There’s tactile paving at the top and bottom of these stairs, which have a hand rail to each side. Turn left (east) at the top and go up a slight slope onto the platform.
See the Environs page for details of this subway.
You go up the ramp, going south, there's a hand rail along the right-hand (west) 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, north) and continue up the ramp. Turn right (east) at the top, onto the south end of the platform.
