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 October, 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.

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 throughout October.

A temporary road closure on Rosehill and Marian Streets, and removal of 5 parking spaces on Cornwallis Street will be in place for a period of five days, from Monday 19 September to Friday 23 September. This is to allow the paving for the shared zone to be sealed.

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

All activities being undertaken adhere to COVID safe practices and comply with current NSW Health COVID-19 Public Health Orders and restrictions.

Little Eveleigh Street shared zone construction

Work will continue on stage two of the Little Eveleigh Street shared zone, with stage one expected to be completed in the coming weeks.

The new shared zone will provide street-scape opportunities such as improved lighting, drainage, and landscaping, and improve pedestrian connections and flow in and around the station area. 

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. 

From Monday 19 September, work on the widening of the footpath in Ivy Street will commence. The street will be temporarily closed to vehicles and parking will be temporarily removed.

Construction of the shared zone and Ivy Street 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 or view the October notification (PDF, 658.56 KB).

All activities being undertaken adhere to COVID safe practices and comply with current NSW Health COVID-19 Public Health Orders and restrictions.

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.
