Historical Redfern Upgrade Studies

In October 2013 Transport for NSW released, following a GIPA request initiated by Lift Redfern, a number of studies undertaken between 2006 and 2010 on Redfern Station - over 800 pages in total. The Documents primarily relate to studies undertaken in preparation for a Gateway review to receive funding from Government. The documents released excluded financial information about the proposals considered. The most recent Gateway document released (Redfern Station Upgrade Gateway Review Planning Session 10 May 2010 - Document 28) shows a preferred design from three option. It also indicated that there was an expectation that construction could commence in July 2011. We have provided both some extracts to enable people to get a quick overview and also will add the Background studies to this section of the site as we are able.
Options for Redfern station upgrade
The South Sydney Herald has also obtained the documents released by RailCorp to Lift Redfern regarding “information relating to planned upgrades at Redfern Train Station”. The documents show the various plans for redevelopment, from the mid 2000s until about 2010, including one favoured by RailCorp for which construction was planned to start in July 2011. Sandra Beeston reports on the documents in the November 2013 issue of the SSH.

File Redfern Station Upgrade - 2007 Study of preferred options
In 2007 Jackson Teece produced a Concept Design Study for the Redfern Station Upgrade. Appendix 4 of that report reported and assessed a number of previous proposals to upgrade Redfern Station as well as some additional suggestions from Jackson Teece. Jacson Teece's Option C emerged from this study as the preferred option. It was later refined in a subsequent study Redfern Station Revised Concept Design report by Cox and formed the basis for the preferred redevelopment option put forward in the Gateway funding proposal. Jackson Teece also developed a Base Case (Option D) and Base case Plus Option (Option E) elsewhere in their report which became the other options in the Gateway proposal - these two options are not covered in this attachment but many others are. This document is one of the documents released under a GIPA request initiated by Lift Redfern of which REDWatch is a member. File is 2.1Mb PDF.
File Redfern Station Upgrade - 2007 Proposed OptionsJackson Teece
In 2007 Jackson Teece produced a Concept Design Study for the Redfern Station Upgrade in 2007. They recommended three Options for the redevelopment: a "Base Case" (Option D) that addressed easy access, fire and other compliance issues on basically the same footprint ($29.5m); a "Base Case Plus" (Option E) that included additional works with Lawson and Gibbon Sts and the ATP ($55.5m) and; a Full Station Redevelopment (Option C) from a centre loading concourse ($143.3m). Here for ease of providing an overview we have extracted a part of the Jackson Teece report which sets out these options and assesses them. These three options formed the basis for a subsequent Cox Arup Bovis Report that was used for the Gateway funding proposal. The document from which this was extracted was one of the documents released under a GIPA request initiated by Lift Redfern of which REDWatch is a member. File is 728 Kb PDF.

This Cox proposal was the C1 Option on the Gateway funding proposal. This is an extract of the much larger Revised Concept Design Report and has been provided to provide a quick overview of the key elements of the proposal. This document is extracted from one of the documents released under a GIPA request initiated by Lift Redfern of which REDWatch is a member. This file is 3.8 MB PDF.
