PLATFORMS 3 - 8
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.
This platform is reached via lift or steps from the bridge.
Platform 4 was under development at the time of our survey and was fenced off from platform 3.
