Overview

There is stairs access between platforms via the bridge. Although there is step-free access via the car park, Station and Links roads, we believe the ramp to/from Links Road may be too steep for some users.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of either platform.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Northbound
From Platform 2, Southbound

From Platform 1, Northbound

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass a series of posts before you reach the building on your right. The foot of the steps to the bridge is beyond this building, in the middle of the platform. The gap to the ramp to Links Road is a few metres beyond the bridge.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you may pass the gap to the ramp to Links Road, before you reach the rear of the steps to the bridge. These steps are in the middle of the platform, you can walk underneath these, we suggest you keep to the left-hand side, as there's no tactile paving. Turn right (180 degrees) for the steps.

The Step-Free Route

Leave the platform, turn left and go down the ramp to the pavement. Some users may find this ramp too steep.

Turn left, continue under the tracks then cross the car park entrance before turning left into Station Drive. Take the first turning left then follow the pavement to the building in front of you then turn left. There's tactile paving outside the main entrance, turn right, through push doors into the ticket office then continue forward, through pull doors onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

Via the Bridge

Go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, turn right then go down another flight onto platform 1. We believe you're beside the rear half of shorter trains and about in the middle of longer ones.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Southbound

The front of the train is at the beginning of the station building. The gap towards the steps to Station Road is a few metres beyond this. Turn back and go through the third door on your right for the ticket office.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you'll reach the rear of the steps to the bridge, which are towards the left-hand side of the platform. You can walk underneath these, move right, but note there's no tactile paving. The station building begins just beyond the foot of the steps, the third door on your left is for the ticket office.

The Step-Free Route

Go through push doors into the ticket office then continue, through pull doors, onto the pavement beside the car park.

Turn left, continue to the kerb then turn right and continue along the pavement onto Station Drive. Turn right then take the first turning right into Station Road.

Continue, across the car park entrance, then under the tracks and take the turning right for the ramp. Turn right at the top onto platform 1. We believe you're behind the rear of shorter trains, turn left then follow the left-hand side, past the steps to the bridge, to the start of the building on your left. We believe you're now beside the rear half of the train.

Note that the steps to the bridge are in the middle of the platform and it is possible to walk underneath these steps, so keep to either side, we suggest left, as there's no tactile paving.

GO TO END

Via the Bridge

You go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, turn right then go down another flight onto platform 1. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.
