Change Platforms

Describe Online

Overview

You can change platforms via the foot bridge, or take the ramped route via Station Road and Station Lane.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform. Note that there's a drainage channel along most of each platform, to which the platform slopes down away from the tactile. This channel is outside most of the obstacles on the platforms.

Which Route?

  From Platform 1 Via the Footbridge
From Platform 1 Via the Ramps
From Platform 2 Via the Footbridge
From Platform 2 Via the Ramps

From Platform 1 Via the Footbridge

The steps to the bridge are beside the front half of most trains, but beyond the front of two-car trains. As you move from the rear of the train, you pass the ticket office, then go under the road bridge before you reach the foot of the steps.

Go up a flight of steps, turn right then go up another flight of steps onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, then turn right and go down another flight of steps to platform level. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 1 Via the Ramps

Go behind the rear of the train and take the turning right, just before the end of the platform. There's a metal gate and distinct tactile paving at the end, if you overshoot this turning.

Go up the ramp, to the car park and turn right. The pavement veers right before you reach the main road. Turn right then continue, past the bus stop and the stepped entrance to the station, on your right. The road veers right here, continue up the hill then take the turning right towards platform 2.

Having turned away from Station Road, you need to move left then right to go round the barriers before going down the first slope. At the bottom of this slope, turn right (180 degrees) then go down the second slope to platform level. You'll need to move left then right around the barriers at the bottom.

As you reach platform level, the waiting room, with a help point is in front of you. turn left onto the platform, you're near the front of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2 Via the Footbridge

The steps to the bridge are beside the rear half of the train. As you move from the front of the train, you pass the ramp exit and the waiting room before going under the road bridge. The steps are a few metres beyond this.

Go up a flight of steps, turn left and go up another flight of steps, onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, then turn left and go down another flight of steps to platform level. You're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2 Via the Ramps

The foot of the ramp is near the front of the train. As you move from the rear of the train, you pass the steps to the foot bridge, then go under the road bridge, before you pass the waiting room on your left. Move left beyond the waiting room and continue forward. You'll have to go lef then right to go round the barriers at the foot of the ramp. Go up the first slope then turn left (180 degrees) and go up the second slope to street level. Again, you'll have to move left then right to go round the barriers at the top of the ramp, before you reach the pavement.

Turn left, down the hill and follow the pavement, which veers left. You pass the stepped entrance and the bus stop before you reach the turning left into Station Lane. Turn left and follow the pavement which veers left before you reach the left turn at the top of the ramp.

Turn left and continue, down the ramp, onto the platform. You're behind the rear of the train, turn left and continue, beyond two flower beds, to reach the wall of the ticket office.
