Walk from Livingston North station to St Johns hospital

Is it possible to walk from the station to the hospital? There is a road called Deans Rd that heads in that direction, but not sure if it has a pedestrian path. It leads onto Alderstone Rd which seems to go all the way to the hospital.

Yes it's possible. There are pavements all the way.

It takes about 20 min at a brisk pace, and from the station to the hospital is predominantly downhill. There are frequent buses between train and hospital, and a taxi rank also.

Yup there is a footpath directly from the platform to Deans Rd. It's very obvious, you won't get lost! Abs

Defo path all the way and every bus that goes down Deans road swings into St.Johns,just in case it's raining and you don't fancy to walk,it will be either £1.30/£1.50 each way. Tinkla
