CHANGE PLATFORMS

Overview

Although there is step-free access from each platform, some users may find the route from platform 2, westbound, a bit steep. See the Environs page for more details.

We'll therefore restrict these directions to routes between platforms via the bridge, as we'll presume that those who have difficulty with steps would be driven through the street network as necessary.

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.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Eastbound
From Platform 2, Westbound

From Platform 1, Eastbound

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass the steps to the bridge before the right turn towards the main exit. Turn right (180 degrees) for the steps.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass a series of posts and bike racks before you reach the rail beside the ramp on your left. Continue forward across the recess to the main exit, bearing slightly left for the steps.

Go up two flights of steps, turn right and go up eight steps onto the bridge. Continue down eight steps, turn right then go down two flights of steps and turn right onto platform 2. We believe you're near the rear of shorter trains and about in the middle of longer ones.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Westbound

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass a series of posts before you reach the paved area. We understand the front of shorter trains is here. Move right then continue forward for the bridge.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass a metal fence before you reach the back of the steps to the bridge, there's a building under these steps. Continue to the foot of the steps then turn left (180 degrees) for the bridge.

Go up two flights of steps, turn left then go up eight steps onto the bridge. Continue, down eight steps then turn left and go down two flights of steps to platform 1. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.
