I feel like they should've given every station at least 4, and sacrificed one of the wide ones if it meant fitting 2 regular gates..

Side note: I watched somewhat walk right up to one of the wide gates at Surrey Central and push his way through with relatively little effort.. They a lot easier to open, as well as follow someone through, than the smaller gates.
