East Side of Midland Road

This appeared to be blocked by building works at the time of our survey. We're aware, however, of the northwest entrance and the taxi pick-up point outside the west central entrance.

The taxi road runs south between the station and Midland Road, leaving an island. There appears to be no controlled crossing outside the northwest entrance to the station. There are railings along the east side of the island from just south of the station entrance.
