Should Brighton have installed more gates?

It does seem cramped during peak times or other times of crowds, when people from the 1-4 platforms all converge at the same point.

There seems plenty of room to install some more gates next to the other platforms. Was it just down to cost that no other gates were installed?

Presumably the cost of installing and the cost of manning, Brighton is not unique in having a bottleneck form at the barriers. Where it becomes really noticeable is when 2 trains arrive from East Croydon in quick succession so the que from the 1st train hasn't cleared when the 2nd starts unloading its' passengers.
