Overview

The refurbishment of this station has provided lift and stairs access to the mainline platforms, however, to date, there is only escalator access to the Subway. We will, therefore, only provide directions including escalator routes between the mainline and Subway platforms.

The doors open on your left as you face the front of the train. The waiting area, with two sets of automatic doors, is about in the middle of the platform. The doors nearer the rear of the train lead towards the escalators, whilst those nearer the front lead towards the stairs and lifts. A walkway joins these two sections of the waiting area.

There's tactile paving along the edge of the platform.
