Overview

There is stairs access between platforms via the bridge. There is step-free access between platforms via the local road network, see the environs page for details. You can either go via St Meddans Street or Victoria Drive, but I think the Victoria Drive route may b slightly easier - there isn't much in it.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is no tactile paving along the edge of either platform.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1
From Platform 2

From Platform 1

As you go from the front of the train, you reach the back of the steps to the bridge. Note, you can walk underneath these steps, be careful! Continue past the foot of the steps then turn right.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass a building, not for public use, then a path to the west approach road which was closed at the time of our survey, before you reach the main building. Continue, beyond this then turn left.

From here, you can continue into the wet approach road for the step-free route, or turn right for the bridge.

Via the Step-Free Route

Continue into the west approach road, turn left and continue to the bottom of the hill, Victoria Drive. Turn left, under the tracks, then take the first turning left and continue up the hill.

As you approach the top, take the turning left, just before the building, onto platform 2. We believe you're beside the rear half of shorter trains and about in the middle of longer ones.

GO TO END

Via the Bridge

Turn right, go up a flight of steps then turn right and go up another flight onto the bridge. Continue, down a flight of steps, turn right then go down another flight onto platform 2. We believe you're behind the rear of shorter trains and beside the rear half of longer ones.

GO TO END

From Platform 2

As you go from the front of the train, you pass a path to the east approach road before you reach the building, you could turn right here and continue onto the east approach road for the step-free route or continue, past the building, to the steps to the bridge.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you reach the back of the steps to the bridge. Note, you can walk underneath these steps, be careful! Continue, beyond the foot of the steps then turn left. From here, you can continue into the east approach road for the step-free route, or turn left for the steps to the bridge.

Via the Step-Free Route

Continue into the east approach road, turn right and continue to the bottom of the hill, Victoria Drive. Turn right, under the tracks then take the turning right and continue up the hill, past the main building then take the turning right and continue onto platform 1. We believe you're about in the middle of shorter trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

GO TO END
