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.

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 provided Transport for NSW with a copy of all submissions received. Transport for NSW has reviewed the submissions and prepared a Response to Submissions report that responds to relevant issues raised. This report is also available on the DPIE Major Project Planning Portal.

DPIE will 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.

Working with the Aboriginal community 

Transport for NSW recognises the importance of Redfern to the Aboriginal community, and is currently seeking feedback from the Aboriginal community for detailed design, heritage interpretation and artistic aspects of the project. Please click here to view the project’s Aboriginal Engagement Portal.

While we are currently consulting on the project design, there will be further opportunities to get involved as the project continues.

Working with residents

Transport for NSW is currently working with residents, the City of Sydney, NSW police, and other stakeholders in the design of the new shared zone on Little Eveleigh Street, and extended shared zone on Marian Street. Design workshops with residents and stakeholders are currently underway.

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 28 November to Sunday 29 November, and work will be undertaken at Redfern station from 5am to 6pm Saturday and from 6am to 8pm Sunday.

Investigation activities, including minor excavations, underground service investigations and overhead wire adjustments will be undertaken on Platforms 1, 2, 3 and 4. Traffic control and pedestrian detour signs will be in place to direct customers.

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.

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.
