Platform 2, Southbound

Describe Online

Overview

This is a separate platform along the east side of the station serving trains towards Ayr and Stranraer.

The building is about in the middle of the platform whilst the exit to the bus stops on the A79 is south of this.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

There is step-free access between the platform and the bus stops on the A79 via the path. There is stairs, escalator and lift access from the walkway into the building.

See the Lifts page for details of the lift. See the Environs page for details of the path to the bus stops. Note that the escalator was going up at the time of our survey.

The Building

This is a rectangular space divided into three sections, the south section includes the stairs, the middle section includes the lift, whilst the north section includes the escalator. Note, this is a single escalator which was upward at the time of our survey.

Note also that the south section, including the stairs was being painted at the time of our survey and so was not accessible to us.

The three sets of doors could open either way, but were on heavy springs at the time of our survey. We're not sure whether these will become automatic.
