Good to see someone tackling some real stations and good choice of subject.

Assuming south is at the bottom of your Eastgate shot, I would say that the right hand island platform should be a lot shorter than the left hand one. Converserly at the north/east end the right hand platform extends further north east than the left one. The overlap is about a third of the total platform length. The footbridge went from the middle of the right hand platform over the bay platforms at an angle not at right angles as you have it. It then kinked over to the island platform at right angles.

Not sure what accuracy you are looking for, but I hope this helps.

Sorry don't have any plans of Central.

Good luck with your project, hope to see it one day.
