Redfern Station Community Option 5 Presentation Notes
On August 6th 2019 REDWatch and Reconnect Redfern presented Transport for NSW a Community Option 5 for the Redfern Station southern concourse. These are the notes from that presentation and should be read alongside the option 5 presentation slides. The presentation argues for five major issues to be addressed in designs for a southern concourse. The presentation also makes the case for a bike and pedestrian concourse between North and South Eveleigh which is missing from the options presented by Transport for NSW.
File Redfern Station Community Option 5 Presentation Slides
This is the presentation provided by REDWatch and Reconnect Redfern to Transport for NSW on August 6th 2019 of a Community Option 5 for the Redfern Station southern concourse. This presentation argues for five major issues to be addressed in designs for a southern concourse. The presentation also makes the case for a bike and pedestrian concourse between North and South Eveleigh which is missing from the options presented by Transport for NSW. These slides are accompanied by some companion notes that detail information presented to Transport for NSW along side these slides. To understand the community proposal the presentation slides should be viewed alongside the presentation notes. This file is a PDF of the presentation.
Image 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.

File RWA Railway Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge Proposals
The Redfern Waterloo Authority (RWA) included the need for a pedestrian and cycle connection between North Eveleigh and South Eveleigh. Here we have assembled some of the planning work they undertook. Firstly we have drawn from the final version of the RWA Built Environment Plan showing two possible connections across the rail corridor. It also included illustrations of how a bridge from North Eveleigh to South Eveleigh would operate and how pedestrians would move from the north end of the station to the south. This work was reflected in the North Eveleigh Concept plan so we have included some material on how this was expected to work on the North Eveleigh side. Finally in 2008 the RWA prepared a proposal for a bridge across the railway line which they called the "Eveleigh Heritage Walk". These documents and supporting were exhibited but the proposal was withdrawn and not progressed. The technical documents can still be accessed on the Department of planning website at http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=1234 - None of these proposals showed how they would connect to the railway platforms however this was expected in the planning documents.
