How to Reach the Platforms

For platforms 4 and 5, the two flights of stairs from the main bridge are divided by rails into three sections. A double rail runs between the northern and middle section, a single rail divides the middle from the southern section. You go down 20 then 6 steps, going east to platform level, then continue about 25 metres to the island platform.

There is distinct tactile paving on each of these platforms, about 60 cm from the edge.
