PLATFORM 1, WESTBOUND

Describe Online

Overview

The entrance and exit are towards the east end of the platform, near the rear of the train.

Unlike other stations we've seen, there are two sets of stairs to each platform separated by a wall. The inner set, closer to the tracks, are entrances, whilst the outer set are exits.

There is tactile flooring at the top and foot of each set of stairs and there's tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

From the bridge, go down five steps, going south, onto a landing.
