CHANGE PLATFORMS

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train.

You can only change platforms within this station via the bridge, which is about in the middle of the platforms. There is stairs and lift access via this bridge.

There is tactile paving along the edge of platform 2, southbound, but none on platform 1, northbound.

Note also, that most of the posts are in the middle of the platforms.

For northbound services, the front of three car trains is just beyond (north of) the building, that of four/five car trains is under the bridge, however, we found no signs indicating where shorter southbound trains stop.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Northbound
From Platform 2, Southbound

From Platform 1, Northbound

As you move from the rear of the train, you pass the ticket office before you reach the steps to the bridge. From here you can either go up the steps or continue, under the bridge, then beyond the lift building then turn left (180 degrees) to the lift door.

As you move from the front of Intercity trains, you pass a metal wall before the gap leading to the lift door. You can continue, under the bridge to reach the steps.

Note that the front of three car trains is just beyond the building. The front of four/five car trains is under the bridge, turn right towards the lift or left towards the steps.

Via the Steps

You go up 5 x 7 steps, towards the front of the train, onto the bridge, turn right, continue to the end then turn right again. Go down 5 x 7 steps onto the platform. Platform 2 is to your right, you're facing the front of the train. We believe you're about in the middle of InterCity trains and towards the rear of shorter ones.

GO TO END

Via the Lifts

See the lifts page for details of both lifts in this station. Go to bridge level and leave via the other set of doors. Turn left, continue to the recess to your left then turn left to the lift to platform 2. Go to platform level and leave via the other set of doors. Platform 2 is to your left, you're facing towards the rear of the train.

We believe you're beside the rear half of InterCity trains and may be behind the rear of shorter ones. If you need a three or four/five car train, we suggest you turn left (180 degrees) and continue beyond the bridge.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Southbound

We found no signs indicating the stopping places for shorter trains, neither did we see any of these stop at the station during our survey. We can, therefore, only give directions from each end of the platform, which is effectively fully occupied by InterCity trains.

As you move from the front of the train, you pass the shelter (beyond which is a help point before you reach the steps from the bridge, which go up towards the rear of the train. The lift is a few metres behind the steps, just beyond the bridge. You enter the lift from the far side, note that the door facing the front of the train is not for public use.

As you move from the rear of the train, you reach the metal wall of the covered area outside the door to the lift, you can turn left beyond this wall, to find the lift door on your right. Continuing, along the platform, you go under the bridge, before you find the steps on your left. If you need assistance, you can continue, beyond these to the shelter. The help point is on a post just before the shelter.

Via the Steps

You go up 5 x 7 steps, going towards the rear of the train. Turn left at the top then continue to the end of the bridge before turning left again and going down 5 x 7 steps onto the platform. Platform 1 is to your left, you're about in the middle of InterCity trains, near the front of four/five car trains and beyond the front of three car services.

GO TO END

Via the Lifts

See the lifts page for details of the two lifts within this station.

Go to bridge level, leave via the other set of doors, turn right and continue to the recess leading to your right, towards the lift to platform 1, then go down to platform level. Platform 1 is to your right, you're beside the front half of Intercity trains, but beyond the front of shorter ones. For shorter trains, turn right (180 degrees) and continue beyond the bridge.
