PT Problem of the Day: Inadequate shelter at the renovated North Melbourne station

POTD: Lack of shelter from the rain at North Melbourne

One of the basic requirements for a shelter is that it should provide shelter. This clearly isn’t the case at North Melbourne following the $35 million upgrade completed in 2010.

Many have noted the escalators are somewhat open to the weather, but this picture shows that even the platform shelters are inadequate; for some reason they finish well short of the edge of the platform, ensuring that passengers getting on and off trains are exposed to the rain.
