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

During May and June 2019, Transport for NSW conducted consultation on the early concept plan for the Redfern Station Upgrade – New Southern Concourse.

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

We heard your support for improving accessibility to Redfern Station and connectivity across the rail-corridor. We also heard feedback asking for more detail of other design options that have been considered.

These options can be viewed in the July newsletter (PDF, 1.03 MB) and project (PDF, 2.33 MB)FAQs. A stakeholder forum was held on 4 July where these options were presented to stakeholder groups and community representatives for discussion. This presentation can be downloaded here (PDF, 1.92 MB).

Have your say

We want to hear your feedback on the options. You can have your say via our online survey or by emailing Please send in your feedback by Saturday 31 August 2019

Investigations underway

Investigations are underway to plan for a new southern concourse at Redfern Station. The results of the invesitgations currently being undertaken will be used to help inform the planning and design of each of these options.

Next steps

The feedback from community consultation, along with other considerations such as precinct development, constructability and operability, will inform Transport for NSW’s choice of its preferred design option. Transport for NSW will then commence the planning approval process for the project.

Transport for NSW will continue to engage with the community and stakeholders over the coming months to further inform the project’s design.
