From Station Road via the Subway

As you move away from the junction with West George Street, take the turning right, go up two steps then through the open doors into the subway. You go up two flights of steps then take the first turning left for platforms 1 - 3, or the second left for platform 4.

To Platforms 1 - 3

Go up a flight of steps to the concourse. From here, you can turn left and go through the door before the wall in front of you, to the ticket office.

For Platform 1

Turn left at the top of the steps, continue to the wall in front of you then turn right. Continue, past a series of windows and blank doors, onto the platform. There's a row of pillars supporting the canopy along the middle of the platform. If you reach the wall, jutting out at the end of the canopy, we believe you'll be about in the middle of the train.

Platform 3 is to your right as you reach the top of the steps. We found no indication of 3, or other car stop positions, but you're about in the middle of the platform. Continue along platform 3, onto the island platform with platform 2, to your left. There's a row of pillars along the middle of this island platform.

Go up two flights of steps onto the platform. We noted a 2 and 4 car stop sign on the second post from the top of the steps, However, we noted another 2 car stop sign some distance along the platform.
