Platforms 6 and 7

These platforms appear to be used solely for the Heathrow Express service.

Platforms 6 and 7 share an island with a row of pillars offset onto platform 7. There's tactile paving near the edge of both platforms. A series of temporary boards starts at the southeast end, near the concourse.
