Degraves St subway

I can’t understand why the Degraves St subway at Flinders St station (especially the exit) is relatively little used compared to the congested entrances at Swanston and Elizabeth Sts.   Not only are the subway entrances on the platforms close to the centre of arriving trains, but the ability to use the subway under Flinders St saves crossing at the lights at surface level.   These crossings are often congested, and the time allowed for pedestrians is quite brief.

EDIT:  The display is managed by Creative Spaces and the area is known as  The Dirty Dozen.
