Platform 1

Describe Online

Overview

This platform runs along the east side of the station. Going North from the Concourse, the platform curves left towards the far end, leaving a significant gap between the train and the platform. There is no tactile paving along the platform edge.

A bridge connects this platform with platform 8, bypassing all other platforms.
