THE PLATFORMS

Describe Online

Overview

This is an island platform, with a central reservation, extending east from the gate line. Platform 5, the terminus platform is to the south, whilst platform 6, departures, is to the north. There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

Note that, unlike most stations, the seats on the platform are set into the wall rather than jutting out onto the platform.

Note that the Mainline platforms are numbered 3 and 4, there is no platform 1 or 2 in either station at this terminal.

There are trolley points along the middle of this space and luggage barriers across the access to each platform.
