Platform 2, EASTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

This is a separate platform along the north side of the station serving trains towards Edinburgh. There is tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

This platform can be reached from platform 1 via the bridge or via a steep ramp from Limefield Road. Note that this latter route is very steep and is therefore unsuitable for some users. See the Environs page for details.
