Platforms 3 - 8

Describe Online

Overview

The principal island platform includes platform 3, along the west and platform 6, along the east.

Platforms 4 - 5 are bay platforms in the north of the island, with platform 4 lying east of platform 3 and platform 5 lying west of platform 6. At the time of our survey, these platforms were under reconstruction, though we were told that they're seldom used.

Platforms 7 - 8 are bay platforms in the south of the island with platform 7 lying east of platform 3 and platform 8 lying west of platform 6.

The steps and lift from the bridge are about in the middle of the platform, north/south. The steps are nearer the west (platform 3) side of the island, east/west, whilst the lift shaft is on platform 3. There's a passage between this lift shaft and the building.

There is tactile paving along all platforms except platform 7.
