Richmond station’s exits provide easy access to the MCG and the Tennis Centre… but only if they’re open. While this is done for big events, often minor events seem to slip under the radar. We’ve had reports of passengers having to inform station staff that an event was on so they would open the exit to the Tennis Centre, for instance. Clearly Metro and event/venue organisers need to coordinate better to avoid large numbers of people having to do a long detour to get where they’re going.
