Southern Concourse - Option 5 Image - A community option

This is an image from the the community generated option for the Southern Concourse which locals are taking to surrounding institutions and to Transport for NSW (TfNSW). This proposal is a modification on TfNSW's option 4 which even they admit is not viable. If there is to be only one bridge then it has to accommodate cycle and pedestrian movements across the rail corridor and not just provide much needed universal access the platforms. It needs to link people to platforms 11 & 12 and buses as well as to South Eveleigh. It also needs to link to the future developments at North Eveleigh and avoid the problems of Little Eveleigh Street and Marian Street. It also needs to meet Rail's platform limitations and not provide an elevated barrier at the rear of Little Eveleigh properties. The proposal is a concept only and is not fully worked up. For example the community suggested that the pathway could go through the Telecommunications building rather than above it or around it. The representations of this in the proposal is a possible way of doing this, it is to be treated as concept designs only not an indication of a preferred outcome. REDWatch wishes to thank Damien Minton for leading this project between REDWatch and Reconnect Redfern. We also wish to think Architects Cracknell and Lonergan for drawing up the proposal based on the community brief.
