Overview

A single entrance from the forecourt gives lift and stairs access to all platforms.

There is tactile paving along the edge of platform 2 and a short section near the north end of platform 3. There is no tactile paving on other platforms in this station.

We understand that all platforms are used for local services, though platforms 1 and 2 are used for mainline services between Glasgow Central and London Euston. Platform 1 serves southbound trains, whilst platform 2 serves northbound.

Platforms 3 and 4 are used bi-directionally.
