There are three island platforms, 1 - 2, 3 - 4 and 5 - 6. Platforms 1 - 2 and 3 - 4 are open platforms with few obstacles along the middle, whilst there are three buildings along platforms 5 - 6.
There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platforms, though there is tactile flooring indicating the end of four car trains.
Whilst it is possible to move between platforms 1 - 2 and 3 - 4 without going through the gate line, there is no level access between platforms 5 - 6 and other platforms, without going via the gate lines.
The foot bridge, towards the far end of the platforms, offers an alternative route between these platforms. You go up four flights of steps, towards the concourse, onto the bridge then tirn right for lower (left for higher) number platforms, before going down four flights of steps, away from the concourse, back to platform level.
