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.


In progress

Upcoming work at Redfern Station and surrounding areas  

From 2am Saturday 16 October to 2am Monday 18 October, work will be occurring on Platforms 8/9, 10 and at the North Eveleigh and Marian Street site compounds. Work being undertaken include service route installation, the installation of various bridge steel components, and delivery and removal of plant, equipment and materials. 

To ensure that these works are undertaken safely, pedestrian access to Platform 10 will be closed on Saturday 10 October and Sunday 17 October. Traffic control and pedestrian detour signs will be in place to direct customers via Gibbons Street. 

In addition to these works, materials and equipment will be periodically removed or delivered to platforms, and electrical work may occur up to two nights per week. For more information, please refer to the October community notification (PDF, 227.77 KB).

All works will be undertaken in line with Public Health Orders, and a range of COVID-safe measures and plans will be utilised.
