PLATFORMS 1 AND 2

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There are other platforms and buildings to the west of platform 1 which are not accessible to the public. The roof of platform 1 is not the same structure as for platform 2 which is part of the main station roof.

There's tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.

The platforms slope down towards a drainage channel which runs along the middle of the platform, till you reach the buildings.

There are yellow arrows painted on the platforms indicating the way to the lifts.
