Platforms 13 and 14

Describe Online

Overview

This island platform lies outside the original limits of the station.

Each platform has its own entrance. The entrance to platform 13 is some distance east of that for platform 14.

Platform 13 is reached by the designated entrance toward the east and it's likely that trains stop adjacent to this. The west section of platform 13, beyond the entrance to platform 14 is designated 13B.

To Reach Platform 13

From the east side of the waiting area, go over a slight ridge in the floor into a passage with glass walls each side. At the end of this passage is the escalator and steps. The up escalator is to your right (south) of the steps.

Cross the tactile paving at the top of the steps and go down 13 then 13 steps, going east, onto the platform.

To Reach Platform 14

From the waiting area, go down 14 then 14 steps, going west, onto the platform. This is a double set of steps divided by a central rail, no escalator.
