Long List for Lift Access

LORD Mayor Clover Moore has received another 500 signatures petitioning for lift access at Redfern station reports Central on May 16 2012.

Cr Moore said that it was the previous government's lack of infrastructure that left stations like Redfern bursting at the seams and without basic amenities.

"Clearly the most outstanding case of a station needing a lift is Redfern and yet the previous government just failed to fund infrastructure and as a political initiative, they went ahead with Newtown before the last election," Cr Moore said.

A petition of more than 11,000 signatures demanding lift access at Redfern has already been presented to state parliament, automatically triggering a debate.

If the petition is successful, commuters could have lift access at Redfern in 12 months.
