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 

Weekend and weeknight work

In addition to activities during standard working hours, weekend and night work will occur during scheduled trackwork periods. 

From 8am Saturday 12 June to 6pm Monday 14 June, work will occur on Platforms 1, 2/3, and North Eveleigh and Marian Street site compounds.

Activities will include excavations, construction of new structures, changes to overhead wiring, and delivery and removal of equipment and materials. 

In addition to the work listed above, materials and equipment will be periodically removed or delivered to platforms at night, and electrical work may occur up to 2 nights per week. The use of various access gates in Redfern, Eveleigh and Erskineville may be required for the removal or delivery of these materials and equipment. This work is not expected to be noisy and we will keep the community informed of the use of these access gates.

Temporary changes to parking on Little Eveleigh Street

From Wednesday 14 June to Wednesday 2 July, up to two car spaces will be unavailable on Little Eveleigh Street as a vacuum truck will be in use to help locate underground services. Traffic control will be in place to safely direct vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians around the work.
