Platform 2, Northbound

Describe Online


This is a separate platform along the northwest side of the station serving northbound trains towards Aberdeen. There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

This platform can be reached via steps from the subway or ramps and steps from Dennis Roger Lane.

From the Subway

From the top of the steps, the door to the platform is on the left-hand (southeast) side, you can continue southwest into a waiting area with a seat on the southeast side and a ticket machine on the southwest.

You go through a pull door onto platform 2. This is a wider platform than platform 1.

Steps from Denis Roger Lane

There are three sets of steps. Those nearest the southwest end of the platform we'll call the southwest steps, whilst the other two sets approach a common entrance to the platform. We'll call these the middle and northeast steps.

The Northeast Steps
