Overview

There are three step-free routes from platform 1, southbound to the service road, a step-free route from platform 1 to the car park and stairs-only access from platform 2, northbound, either to Avenel Road or via the bridge. See the Environs page for details of the exits to this station.

For completeness, we'll include the route to Avenel Road, via the bridge, from platform 1.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Southbound
From Platform 2, Northbound

From Platform 1, Southbound

As you move from the front of the train, you pass a number of posts before you reach the ticket office building. You could turn right before or after this building and continue onto the service road. The steps to the bridge are just beyond the further path. Continue beyond these, towards the end of the platform and take the turning right into the car park.

Otherwise, you could go through the ticket office. The sales window is to your right, continue through the opposite door onto the service road, the taxi pick-up point is in front of you.

To Avenel Road

Continue, up the flight of steps in front of you. Turn left, go up another flight onto the bridge and continue down a flight of steps. Turn left, go down another flight of steps, onto platform 2. Take the turning right and follow the path, which slopes slightly down before going up again. Continue, up a flight of widely spaced steps, onto the canal bridge.

Continue down seven widely spaced steps, then down a further flight of steps, spiralling to your left, then continue onto Avenel Road.
