THE PLATFORMS

Describe Online

Overview

This is an island platform running east/west with platform 3, eastbound lying north of platform 4, westbound.

There's tactile paving along the edge of the platforms and a row of pillars and other features along the middle.

To Reach

There's stairs access to each end of the platform from the walkway, though there is lift access at the east end of the platform.

To the east end, you go down 16 then 14 steps, going west, from the walkway to platform level. To the west end, you go down 16 then 16 steps, going east. Each set of stairs is divided into two sections by a central barrier and there's tactile paving at the top and bottom of the stairs. At the time of our survey, we found no indication of which side is preferred.

You leave the lift facing west and continue along a passage leading west onto the rear of platform 4.
