Redfern Station Upgrade - New Southern Concourse


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 six new stairs and lifts
  • better connectivity with the surrounding areas including key destinations such as South Eveleigh (formerly known as Australian Technology Park), Carriageworks and education centres

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

In progress

Project Status

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback or took the time to come and meet with the project team and ask questions during the recent consultation periods.

Following analysis of consultation feedback and other design issues, Transport for NSW has selected a design that connects Marian Street with Little Eveleigh Street as the design option that best meets the project’s objectives.

Information about the feedback received is available in a Consultation Report (PDF, 20.9 MB).

Platforms 11 and 12

We appreciate that station users want access to be improved to the underground Platforms 11 and 12. Transport for NSW intends to develop the land to the east of Redfern Station, above the underground T4 Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra Lines. This would include improved access to Platforms 11 and 12, which would make Redfern Station fully accessible.

Next steps

A State Significant Infrastructure application has been lodged with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) requesting Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs). These requirements will allow Transport for NSW to begin preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which we expect to be on public display in 2020.
