Site Description

Open in 1992 to replace York Road Station, this two platformed station serves the nearby shopping centre of the same name. It acted as a temporary terminus for 2 years, pending completion of the cross harbour link. The station is currently (2023) being rebuilt and will be renamed York Street.

The station building is on the Down platform, with the platforms connected by a footbridge, at each end of which is a lift for wheelchair access. Coupled with ramp access to the Down platform, this enables complete access for the disabled. In the station proper, there is a ticket office, waiting area and toilets. There is a plaque in the station, commemorating its official opening by Robert Atkins, MP.
