Why would I pass a gateline to change platforms at Manchester Piccadilly? There is a footbridge connecting the platforms. For some reason the station designers decided not to install a glass wall half way along it, so you actually can reach your desired platform.They would read the signs pointing to other platforms and pass the gateline, as you do when changing trains at e.g. Manchester Piccadilly. Or if confused they would ask the staff on the gateline.
Also, the bridge provides access to seats, toilets and coffee if you have a bit of time to fester.
