Find a platform from an entrance

Overview

It would be good if we could reasonably restrict these directions to the routes from the actual entrances to the station onto each platform. This would include the trivial, level access from the south car park onto platform 2 and the ramp and stairs routes from the north car park onto platform 1.

Unfortunately, we ought to consider how customers are to reach this unstaffed station from buses in Deans East Road and how you could cross the tracks, via the road bridge, from each car park to the other platform. This latter will be covered in the Change Platforms page, so we won't duplicate that here.

See the Environs page for more details.

We note that the routes to each platform begin on opposite sides of the rail bridge in Deans East Road and that there is access to each route from either side of this road. These directions are therefore restricted to:

All these routes include directions from the respective car park to the platforms.

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform. We note that the entrance to each platform is near or perhaps behind the rear of some trains, so, on reaching the platform, we suggest you move towards the front of the train a few metres to be sure of being in a useful place.
