Overview

This is a separate platform along the north side of the station.

The step entrance from the ticket office leads via the waiting room then through a door facing east along the platform. The lift is in the covered area to the east of the waiting room. These features are about in the middle of the platform and there is tactile paving along the edge.

To Reach

Via the Steps

From the ticket office you go up eight steps, going west, turn left (south), go up ten steps, going south. Turn left (east) then go up 13 steps, going east into the waiting room. There’s tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps, which have a hand rail to each side.

Continue (east), up three steps then go through the door and turn right onto the platform. There is no tactile paving at the top or bottom of these three steps.

Via the Lift

The call button is to your right of the door, go up to platform level and leave via the other door. You leave the lift facing south, across the platform. There's a metal rail in front of you, move round this to either side.
