Redfern Station Southern Concourse Consultation until 2 June 2019

Plans for a new southern concourse to Redfern Station have been made available for public comment. This is the first step in a State Significant Infrastructure Project process which will take a couple of years to plan and deliver a new concourse.

The proposed concourse goes from the UrbanGrowth owned building that the Big Issue operates from on Little Eveleigh Street to the top of Marian Street.

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 to 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
