Passage to Trains

The passage leads south, with tiled walls then turns left (east). After a landing you go down 16 steps, going east onto the platform. There's corduroy tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps, there's also tactile paving 50 cm from each edge of the platform.

Layout

This is a straight island platform with no tactile paving near the edges. The outer circle is to your right, you’re near the front of the train, whilst the inner is to your left, you’re near the rear.

There are no features of interest till you reach the fire exit door at the east end of the platform.
