They don't say what they are going to do but they are going to do something. [see link and extract below]
I thought they should figure out a way to get the buses down underneath in the platform 1 area but on reflection seems to be operationally impractical, aside from lacking space. However if the ramp up to the bus interchange went down, instead of up, it would come out right on the down end of the platform; if you look on Google Earth you can see this clearly Google Earth of Box Hill Surely they will never use platform one again.
PS One thing I find strange is the after hours access to the station is via the old V/Line goods dock on the roof near the bus interchange.
PPS Sorry to bump another old thread but the context clearly shows this is the best place for it.

Box Hill bus interchange
The Box Hill bus interchange is a major public transport hub.
The interchange opened in 1987 as part of the Box Hill Central shopping centre, which sits above the train station and near the terminus for the 109 tram.
Box Hill has experienced substantial commercial and residential growth in recent years and with this growth expected to continue, the Victorian Government has committed to explore the options available to improve the Box Hill bus interchange.
Ministerial Advisory Group
The Victorian Government established a Ministerial Advisory Group (MAG) to provide recommendations to the Minister for Public Transport on options for the interchange. The MAG includes local community representatives and is chaired by the Member for Eastern Metropolitan Region and Parliamentary Secretary for Public Transport, Shaun Leane.
The MAG has established working groups and a program for developing options for the future of the bus interchange.
The working groups are reviewing previous work by the City of Whitehorse and transport agencies and will report to the MAG on current issues and outcomes of previous work.
The MAG will also undertake a workshop to consolidate the broad range of stakeholder needs and visions for the interchange.
The MAG will provide its recommendations to the Minister for Public Transport by the end of 2016.
