Platform 2, WESTBOUND

Describe Online


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

The steps from the subway lead into a waiting area about in the middle of the platform, the step-free entrance from the car park is adjacent to the waiting area, whilst the stepped entrance from Back Station Road is towards the east end of the platform. The lift is a few metres west of the waiting area, on the west half of the platform.

There's tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

Via the Subway

Note that the subway is narrow and low, about 2 metres in height.

From the ticket office, you go south along the passage, up a Slight slope, there's an RNIB REACT beacon at the south end of the passage.

Via the Lift

Turn right, the lift is in front of you with the call button to your right (north) of the door. Go up to platform level, leave via the same door then continue forward beyond the rail on your left before turning left onto the platform. The 3/4 car stop sign is at the left-hand (west) end of the lift building.

Via the Steps

Turn left (east) then go up 13 then 15 steps, going east to platform level. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps, which have a hand rail to each side.

You're in a waiting area off platform 2.

From the Car Park

From the north side of the car park, you continue north along a short path. You pass the waiting room on your left before you reach the platform.

From Back Station Road

As you move west, up the slope towards the car park, you'll find a turning right (north) just before the car park entrance. Continue north, up five steps, going north, onto the platform. We believe you'll be behind the rear of shorter trains, we suggest you turn left and continue (west) towards the waiting room.
