The station is located on the north side of Melcombe Place (east/west), between Harewood Avenue (north) to the west and Boston Place (north) to the east. An emergency exit from the north end of the platforms leads onto Rossmore Road (east/west) which bridges the tracks. Details of this lie beyond the scope of this survey.

Entrances and Exits

There are three regular entrances/exits to this station, plus the emergency exit onto Rossmore Road:

This has level access from the pavement into the southeast corner of the concourse. The gate line is in front of you with the ticket sales windows to your left of that.

This has level access via a passage, with retail units to your left, into the southwest corner of the concourse. The ticket sales windows are to your left and the gate line, on your left beyond these.
