In a time of growing patronage, stations still only get one platform exit.

In a time of growing patronage, stations still only get one platform exit.
There are some example where stations have been added an extra exit, they are at Prahran, Yarraville, Altona is next. Ormond and Gardiner station are rebuilt where exits are at both sides. Yes it is a cheap way to provide an easier way to access a station and many more can happen across the network if it was more of a political issue (https://wongm.com/2015/09/second-entrance-for-prahran-station/). For example at North Melbourne all you need to do is provide staff at the old entry, add some myki gates and the second entrance is there. A third entrance at Southern Cross could easily be added by reopening the subway underneath.
