Navigation Road sign

Navigation Road station is on the section of Metrolink to Altrincham that is shared with National Rail, hence the notice under the sign that only one of the station's two platforms is used for Northern trains. That's platform 1, whose southern end we see here:

The entrance to platform 1 is from the road next to this level crossing:
