Find a platform from an entrance

Describe Online

Overview

There are three entrances to this station: from the car park, the subway or Mill Road.

There is step-free access from Mill Road and either stepped or step-free access from the car park onto platform 1, bi-directional. There is stairs access to each platform from Village Road via the subway.

There is now stairs and lift access between platforms via the bridge.

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform and at the top and bottom of the steps from the car park. There was no tactile paving at the steps in the subway at the time of our survey, but there were bright coloured nosings on the steps.

From Which Entrance?

From the Car Park

You can either go up nine steps, or use the ramp to reach platform level. If you use the ramp, turn right at the foot of the steps, go up the first slope then turn left (180 degrees) and go up the second slope then turn right and continue onto platform 1. If you use the steps, continue forward along the short path onto platform 1. This platform is used bi-directionally, we believe you're about in the middle of the train.

Take the turning left, you go down four flights of steps into the subway. Turn right, continue to the wall at the end then turn right, go up four flights of steps and turn right onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.
