Redfern Station Upgrade - New Southern Concourse

Reviewed

Project overview

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Redfern Station as part of the Transport Access Program.

The project aims to provide a station precinct that is accessible to those with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage.

Upgrading Redfern Station will make it easier for all customers to access, as well as improving connections between the station and key destinations in the area. The upgrade includes a new concourse at the southern end of the station.

Key benefits

  • Easy access to platforms 1 to 10 with 6 new stairs and lifts.
  • Better connectivity with the surrounding areas including key destinations such as South Eveleigh (formerly known as Australian Technology Park), and education centres.

 

Upgrading Redfern Station is the first step in renewing the Redfern North Eveleigh precinct.

Upcoming work at Redfern Station and surrounding areas  

During February, we will continue to carry out work at and around the station area. This include work at:

  • Marian Street and North Eveleigh compound areas, and on the new southern concourse
  • the new station entrance and shared zone on Little Eveleigh Street.
  • the new station entrance and new shared zone on Marian Street.
  • footpath widening on Ivy Street.

Marian Street shared zone construction

Work will continue on the new station entrance and new shared zone on Marian Street as well as within the Marian Street compound.

Standard construction hours for the project are between 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

For more information, please view the February notification (PDF, 725.11 KB).

Little Eveleigh Street shared zone construction

Work will continue on stage two of the Little Eveleigh Street shared zone. Stage one has been completed and is open for local access. 

The new shared zone will improve lighting, drainage, and landscaping, and improve pedestrian connections around the station. 

Little Eveleigh Street will remain temporarily closed to vehicles and cyclists to enable construction of the shared zone. Signage, barriers and traffic controllers will be in place to safely direct vehicles, cyclists during construction and pedestrian access will be maintained. 

Construction of the shared zone will be undertaken during standard construction hours. However, some out of hours work will occur intermittently at the corner of Little Eveleigh Street and Lawson Street

Standard construction hours for the project are between 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

For more information, please visit the Little Eveleigh Street shared zone webpage.  

Relocating a 130-year-old heritage building at Redfern Station  

Weighing 70 tonnes, the heritage building travelled 18 metres down Platform 1 at Redfern Station to its new home. The building was moved to ensure the new stairs and lift shafts as part of the New Southern Concourse did not interfere with the structure of the building.  

It is believed the building was built in 1884 and has served a number of purposes over the years, including an electrical workshop, ticket office, station office, and a railway telegraph office.  

The move took two days to complete, and the whole moving process can be viewed in just one minute in the time-lapse video below.
