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), and education centres


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

Livestream Event 

On Wednesday 17 June 2020, a livestream event was held by the project team. To view a recording of the livestream event, please click here.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the livestream event. Although the project team answered most of the questions during the event, there were some remaining questions that we did not get to on the day.

Next steps

An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project was on public exhibition between 27 May and 24 June 2020. We would like to thank everyone who provided their feedback. The EIS can still be viewed on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s (DPIE) Major Project Planning Portal

At the completion of the public exhibition period, DPIE will provide Transport for NSW with a copy of all submissions received. Transport for NSW will review the submissions and prepare a submissions report that responds to relevant issues raised. This report and other supporting documents would be made available to the public.

DPIE will then assess the information provided in the report and consider feedback before determining whether the project should be approved by the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces.

Over the coming months, Transport for NSW will work with City of Sydney Council, residents, NSW Police and other stakeholders to design a new shared zone on Little Eveleigh Street and extended shared zone on Marian Street. This process will take into account the needs of both station users and residents. We will be in touch with stakeholders and residents to inform them of how they can take part in this process.

Site investigations

From now until December 2020, minor works will occur at Redfern Station. In addition to activities during standard working hours, weekend and night work will occur during scheduled trackwork weekends. This work will allow the project team to continue progressing the design.

The next upcoming scheduled trackwork weekend is Saturday 11 July to Monday 13 July. In addition, from 3pm Monday 13 July to 6pm Wednesday 15 July, up to three parking spaces on Marian Street and six spaces on Little Eveleigh Street will be temporarily unavailable to allow for a drill rig to be set up. Traffic control will be in place and access to driveways will remain.

Platforms 11 and 12

We appreciate that station users want access to be improved to the underground Platforms 11 and 12. Transport for NSW is investigating options for developing the land to the east of Redfern Station, above the underground T4 Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra Lines. These investigations include improving access to Platforms 11 and 12, which would make Redfern Station fully accessible. Transport for NSW will consult with community, stakeholders and station users on proposals for improved access to Platforms 11 and 12.
