It is a remnant considering.In addition, there is a notch line in the Tosu direction of the No. 1 platform, but this is a remnant of the departure and arrival of the Saga line train, and although it is a part, the elevated Saga line remains.[1]..The escalator / elevator to the platform was improved, but the platform was not raised because the stepped railcars on the Karatsu line entered.This is 20 for regular trains cmThis is because a weak step is generated. In 2012, half of the platform was raised near Tosu, and the floor became brick-like, similar to Hakata Station.On the other hand, the construction work near Hizen-Yamaguchi has not been carried out as before, and the stop position of the diesel railcars on the Karatsu Line has moved to the Hizen-Yamaguchi side.It is no longer stopped in the center of the platform like before, so be careful when boarding.
