Location

We found no alternative public transport access to this station, so, unless you're familiar with the area, we presume you'd be driven or otherwise escorted to the station.

We turned (east) from Millerhill Road, onto an apparently unnamed road that leads across the tracks to the station car park. The station is in a cutting lying to the west of this car park.

Entrances and Exits

There's one entrance to this station from the car park, giving ramp access to platform 2, southbound plus ramp and stairs access, via the bridge, to platform 1, northbound.

There's a zebra crossing of the car park entrance, leading west. You pass bike racks on your left, before you reach the ramp. Turn right (north) for platform 2, left (south) for the bridge to platform 1. If you continue beyond these ramps, you pass steps up to the bridge, followed by steps down to platform 2, on your left.

Turn right (north) and go down the first slope. Turn left (west) then left again (south) and go down the second slope onto the platform.

The station has a significant car park with three accessible parking bays towards the south end, near the entrance to the station.

The configuration of this station suggests that further development of this area is expected, which may provide an additional entrance onto platform 1 in due course.
