North Sheen station is just off Manor Road, where there is a level crossing. Originally, the railway was planned to run through a narrow cutting, allowing Green Lane (as Manor Road was then called) to be carried over the railway by a road bridge.
The station had a footbridge allowing access to the island platforms from both sides of the level crossing, but now only the northern half of that bridge remains. A new bridge, on the opposite side of the level crossing to the station, was opened in October 2013. When the level crossing is closed, passengers wishing to gain access to the platforms from the south side of Manor Road have to use both the new bridge and the existing one.
