Overview

There is stairs and ramp access between platforms via Deans East Road. these routes, particularly via the ramps, are quite complex. See the Environs page for more details.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

We note that the exit from each platform is near or perhaps behind the rear of some trains, so we'll only consider your moving towards the rear of trains.

From Platform 1, Eastbound Via the Steps

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter on your right before you reach the gap in the fence to the exit. There's a help point just before this gap. Note also that the posts are along the middle of this section of the platform.

Move to the far side of this gap then move right and continue up a flight of steps. Turn right, go up three steps then turn right again and go up a flight of steps. Turn left then go up three flights of steps to the north car park and turn right.

Continue, past the ramp exit then down the slope towards the road bridge. Take the first turning left and go up two flights of steps to road level. turn right (180 degrees), continue over the rail bridge then take the turning right and take the second turning right. You go down two flights of steps, turn left (180 degrees), go down a flight of steps then turn right and go down a flight of steps into the south car park. Continue, beyond the foot of the ramp to your right then turn right and continue onto the platform. Turn left and continue for a few metres to be sure of being beside the train.

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter on your right before you reach the gap in the fence to the exit. There's a help point just before this gap. Note also that the posts are along the middle of this section of the platform.

As you reach the gap, turn right (180 degrees) and follow the ramp up to the north car park, which will be to your right as you reach the top of the ramp.

Turn right (180 degrees) then continue to the end of the car park. Turn left. If you find yourself going down a steep slope, you've overshot, turn back then take the turning right.

Continue, up the slope then take the turning right and follow the ramp up to road level, turn right (180 degrees) onto the pavement and continue, past the turning right, over the rail bridge then take the turning right.

Follow the ramp down to the south car park. If you take a turning right that leads you back, under the road, turn back and follow the ramp down to the car park.

Turn right from the foot of the ramp onto the platform. Turn left and continue for a few metres to be sure of being beside the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Westbound Via the Steps

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter before you reach the gap to the south car park. Note, there's a help point just before you reach this gap. Go through the gap, between bollards, pass the foot of the ramp to your left then turn left towards the steps. You go up a flight of steps, turn left then up another flight. Turn right (180 degrees) then go up two flights of steps, onto the path then turn left. Continue onto the pavement, then turn left and continue, over the rail bridge.

Take the first turning left, turn almost immediately left, go down two flights of steps to the North Rail Path and turn right.

As you leave the road bridge behind you, you go up a steep slope into the north car park. Continue, following the left-hand side, past the ramp entrance then take the next turning left. You immediately go down three flights of steps, turn right, go down a flight of steps. turn left, go down three steps, before turning left again and going down a final flight of steps to platform level. Turn right onto the platform then turn left and continue a few metres towards the front of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Westbound Via the Ramps

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter before you reach the gap to the south car park. Note, there's a help point just before you reach this gap. Go through the gap, between bollards and turn immediately left (east) for the foot of the ramp.

We don't normally include compass points in this section of our guides, but I think this ramp is complex enough to warrant this departure from our normal practice.

Go up the slope, there are railings and a hand rail to each side, turn left (north) then immediately right (east).

Continue up the slope, turn right (south) then right again (west). Turn left (south) then left again (east).

Turn left (north) then almost immediately right (east). From here, the south path continues east, under Deans East Road.

Turn right (south), then right (west). Turn left (south) then left (east). Turn right (south) then right (west). Turn left (south) then left (east) and continue up to the pavement then turn left.

Continue, over the rail bridge and take the second turning left. Turn immediately right then follow the path, down the ramp, into the north car park. Continue, to the fence in front of you then turn right.

Take the first turning left and follow the ramp down to platform level. As you reach the platform, turn left (180 degrees) and move forward a few metres, towards the front of the train.
