Key to description

The scope of this description will cover the internal areas and up to 30-50 metres surrounding the building or bus station. We will be using compass directions together with solid object locaters. i.e. North is the entrance, south the exit and East, left is a row of shops and to the right west you can find the platforms/stances from 1 to 12.

Closed and open platforms:

A closed platform is one with a track to one side and a wall, or other obstruction, to the other side. An open platform, has a track on either side of it.

Covered walkways:

A covered walk way has glass on both sides with a roof and often access doors or exits and entrances either leading to road crossings or the bus drop off point.


These are bus stops.

A gate which can be opened by pressing a smart card or disabled pass to a touch sensitive pad located at waste height.

Audio Units:

These are approx. a metre off the ground with a single push button. Pressing the button will cause the stance number, departure of next bus and the current time to be spoken.

Customers with this card can now access the Subway by presenting their National Entitlement Card directly at the ticket gate.

This is a queuing system using a retractabil nylon black cord with metal posts.
