Harbour crossing back on track
A SECOND harbour crossing will be the centrepiece rail project in the state government's draft transport masterplan, to be unveiled within months reports Jacob Saulwick in the SMH of 2 June 2012.
Redfern Station upgrade update
Media reports on the NSW Government’s Fixing the Trains: Sydney’s Rail Future on June 21 said the second harbour tunnel crossing would extend through the city and connect south of Central to the Illawarra and Bankstown lines. This is consistent with maps in the report and may help speed up the sale of North Eveleigh and the upgrade of Redfern Station which should not be impacted.
Redfern & NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan – Exhibition Until 26 Oct
The Draft Masterplan says of Redfern Station “A comprehensive and multi-modal upgrade would address station access and connectivity issues, including access within and to the station, safe and convenient interchange with bus, pedestrian and cycle routes, and accommodating a corridor for expansion of the CBD rail network”. The Draft however sees this as a medium term priority as part of “upgrades to develop key city interchanges including Town Hall, Central, Redfern, Wynyard and Circular Quay”

It's give then take over Redfern station funding
When it comes to Sydney power couples, they don't come much more powerful than Deputy Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and his wife, former deputy premier Carmel Tebbutt. But Sydney residents might be wondering what they are getting out of the relationship, after it emerged on Thursday that Mr Albanese personally vetoed plans for an upgrade of one of Sydney's busiest trains stations because it was next to his wife's seat reports Jacob Saulwick the Sydney Morning Herald's Transport Reporter n 9 August 2013.
City to Eveleigh Proposals
On 12 July 2013 the NSW Government anounced it would call for Expressions of Interest to develop the rail way corridor between Central and Evleigh including the possibility of a over the railway line redevelopment of Redfern Station.
