THE PLATFORMS

Describe Online

Overview

The station has a single island platform running east/west with platform 1, serving eastbound trains towards Cockfosters lying north of platform 2, serving westbound trains towards Heathrow Airport and Uxbridge.

There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

To Reach

The platforms are reache via escalator or steps from the ticket hall. One escalator wasn't working at the time of our survey, but we presume the left-hand escalator is normally the one you need.

If you use the steps, you go down 7 x 17 steps, going west to platform level, there's a long stretch of hand rail before the top and beyond the bottom of these steps which have tactile paving at the top and bottom.

The foot of the steps and escalators is in a central reservation with:
