Redfern Station upgrade gets tick of approval
21 December, 2020
Work will begin soon on a new southern concourse at Redfern Station which will deliver better access for customers following the project receiving formal planning approval.
The new concourse will significantly improve lift and stair access to Platforms 1 to 10, especially for less mobile customers.
The upgrade will also include new and improved shared zones on Little Eveleigh and Marian Streets, and increased bike parking.
With nearby Tech Central slated to become Australia’s answer to Silicon Valley, the upgraded infrastructure will help unlock the potential of the broader Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct.
The upgrade is funded through the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, with the Novo Rail Alliance appointed to deliver the work.
Early preparation work will commence over the holiday period with major construction to start in January 2021, with completion expected by 2022.
The early work will take place during a scheduled rail maintenance shut down when trains are not running to allow the work to be completed safely and to fast-track delivery to reduce the impacts on the local community.
