The Bridge

Describe Online


Although parallel to Main Street, the bridge is a separate, enclosed walkway within the station. There is ramp-only access from the northbound platform 2 and stairs-only access between the ticket office and the southbound platform 1. Note that there is ramp access to platform 1 from Muir Hall Road, just north of the station building.

The Ramp from Platform 2

The foot of the ramp is just east of the door to the waiting room, This is the start of a covered area that includes the ramp and the bridge.

You go up the ramp, going south, there are windows on the left-hand (east) side and a blank wall on the right. There's a hand rail to each side.

The bridge leads east from the top of the ramp. There's an RNIB REACT beacon in the southwest corner.

We believe both the toilets are accessible. A sign says that a key can be obtained from the ticket office, though we found the door to the gents, at least, was unlocked at the time of our survey.
