Redfern Station Easy Access Estimates response - Nov 2011

The Hon Cate Faehrmann MLC placed a question on Notice about accessibility at Redfern Station to the Transport Minister in Estimates General Purpose Standing Committee No. 3 in October 2011. The Minister did not answer the question regarding Redfern Station in the transcript below:

Question: BE  4. Accessibility of rail stations (Easy Access program)

a. Is Redfern Station scheduled for works under the Easy Access program to provide disabled access?
b. When is this work likely to begin?
c. When will it be completed?


I am advised:
(a-c) The O'Farrell Government has committed an additional $60 million over the next four years to boost the Easy Access Program, an increase of over 50 per cent on what was previously proposed to be spent over that period. This year alone the NSW Government has committed $30 million
for Easy Access upgrades.
The Government is in the process of determining where future upgrades to stations will take place.
Gladys Berejiklian MP
Minister for Transport

REDWatch Note: The Government has until 2023 to have all stations accessible under the Easy Access programme.
